We arrived at the year. What seemed like a dream in June 2018 is crystallizing as a reality: we have a magazine to talk about music in Cuba. The happiness of the anniversary is mixed with the celebrations for the centenary of the most popular Cuban music artist of all time, the legendary Benny Moré, and that is why our cover shows him to the Barbarian of the Rhythm played by Giselle Monzón.
In this special issue we bring a Deconstructing the night dedicated to the young but already established sanctuary of the song in Havana, La Casa de la Bombilla Verde; a small comic in homage to Benny in its beginnings; an article about the Cuban scene in Barcelona; the usual reviews and much more.
