7 OCTOBER 2018

Cubadisco 2018 was rescheduled this year and combined with Primera Linea.   An additional event, the 1 Encuentro de Melomanos & Coleccionistas, took place at the beginning of these two events.  Bill Tilford attended all three, and in the weeks to come we will publish photo galleries and commentaries about different aspects of the events.  Over time, we will also publish reviews of many recordings. 

More than 240 recordings from Cuba and the diaspora were submitted to Cubadisco in 2018.  This year featured some lively debates over some of the categories, especially the new Música Bailable categories.   There were 177 nominations including recordings that were nominated in multiple categories and 58 awards not including Premios de Honor not related to specific recordings.  Producciones Colibri received the most awards for recordings with 18 followed by EGREM with 16,  The reverse was true in nominations where EGREM had 50 for recordings followed by 43 for Colibrí.  The only categories more or less dominated by a single label were the academic music categories, where Colibrí has a specific mission to work with those genres.
