(Coverage by Bill Tilford, email tilfordproductions@gmail.com)


Your correspondent had booked his flights and his casa particular for Cubadisco only to contract COVID in the US a couple of days before he was to depart. Fortunately, more of the event is shown on Cuban television every year, and by extension, you can watch the Simposio Internacional and some concerts on the Streaming Cuba page in Facebook.   You can see other archived Cubadisco video on the CREART  YouTube channel.   Sone additional Cubadisco events will be continuing until early June so keep your eyes on those sources. 

Not counting the international prizes and some other special awards but including the regular categories and special prizes related to specific albums,  Colibrí took home the most awards this year with 12 follwed by Bis with 8, EGREM with 7 and Abdala with 3.   Four agencies and two independent productions won awards this year.  The Grand Prize was awarded to Será que se acabo by Alexander Abreu & Havana d'Primera (Abdala), which also won Música Bailable & Diseño de Sonido (the Recording category) 

It is worth mentioning that Colibrí, which historically often suffered significant time lags between the completion of an album and its availability to the public, successfully released most of its projects in time to be available now this year.   

Although unable to physically attend the event, I am recording radio interviews long distance with many of the winners and you will be able to hear these along with some of the music on my program From The Isle of Music beginning in June.  

With special thanks to Lourdes Martínez and the Instituto Cubano de la Música,
