CUBADISCO 2016 APPROACHES / CUBADISCO 2016 SE ACERCA

But first, more about Cubadisco 2015

Pero primero, más acerca de Cubadisco 2015

ENGLISH:  Cubadisco 2016, Cuba's premiere awards program for recordings plus a week-long concert series, symposium and trade fair, will take place from May 14-22, 2016 and various locations in Havana.   This year's theme is Música  Bailable, and the Country of Honor is Mozambique.   We eagerly anticipate some special edition recordings in genres like Timba and can't wait to see what happens this year. 

In the meantime, we have prepared something special in the aftermath of Cubadisco 2015; our Cubadisco 2015 section now contains pages with links to reviews and videos of many of the nominees, especially in the dance music and Jazz categories.   This is an opportunity to dive deeper into these wonderful recordings, and the videos are (usually) excellent.   
You can visit the English language version of the section here. 

A program on shortwave radio which your servant hosts, From the Isle of Music, is dedicated to several different genres of Cuba's music and also features interviews with the artists in addition to the music.   One of the stations that transmits the program is in Germany, the other in the United States.

El tema de este año es Música Bailable, y el País de Honor es Mozambique. Esperamos con muchisimo entusiasmo algunas grabaciones de edición especial en géneros como la Timba y no podemos esperar a ver qué va a pasar este año.

Mientras tanto, hemos preparado algo especial en las secuelas del Cubadisco 2015; nuestra sección de Cubadisco 2015 ahora contiene páginas con enlaces a reseñas y videos de muchos de los nominados, especialmente en la categorias de música de baile y el Jazz.

El Baile de la Palangana - Video

El Niño y La Verdad

Emilio Frias "El Niño" y La Verdad are currently touring Venezuela but yesterday they released the official video for "El baile de la palangana", a whimsical song that has been popular at concerts for months now. The new CD is going by the working title "Más Duro" and as we have mentioned before, it features a number of guest artists such as El Canario Issac Delgado and Alexander Abreu. The band will be touring Europe in May-June and will visit at least nine countries. Stay tuned. We will soon update the tours page with the full list of confirmed concerts.
