The AM: PM Cassettes - Underrated Cuban Musicians

2 minutos / Magazine AM:PM

30.11.2020 / Articles,  Podcast

The "undervalued" Cuban musicians are dedicated to The AM: PM cassettes this Monday. Musical history shows that many artists, for various reasons and despite their talent and aesthetic quality, pass without pain or glory before the general public, critics or cultural institutions. His music becomes knowledge of niches and does not transcend as the musical proposal, in this case, deserves.

¿La posible subvaloración sucede porque su música está demasiado adelantada o atrasada a su tiempo? ¿Es solo una cuestión de timing? ¿Median los intereses políticos y culturales para que el artista se convierta, o no, en un fenómeno de masas? ¿Cuál es el rol de los medios de comunicación? ¿Cuánta importancia tiene la preservación de la memoria histórica musical para el reconocimiento futuro de los artistas? ¿Qué tienen en común Arsenio Rodríguez, Gema y Pável, Noel Nicola, El Noro, Mongo Santamaría, Roly Berrío, Nacional Electrónica?

These are some of the questions asked by the collector René Espí, our collaborator Iván Igüed and Rafael Valdivia, a member of the editorial board of our magazine - melómanos all -, who were invited by our director Rafa G. Escalona to this fifth episode that arrives now from República Records studios. A podcast that is no longer in quarantine, but that continues to make our lives happier on difficult days.
