Dyango to the Cuban public at Havana
For over two hours, Dyango gave a passionate concert and sang in unison with the public some of his classic themes that made him so popular during the 1980’s in Cuba.

Joining Dyango on stage were Grammy winning pianist Chucho Valdes, Buena Vista Social Club member Omara Portuondo, and singer Beatriz Marquez, whom he complimentary called Cuban music “monsters.”

Intense moments, duets, improvisation, and an off-script duet with Cuban singer Alfredo Rodriguez added a special touch to the gala.

During the concert, Dyango announced that he and Chucho Valdes will record an album. “It will be only Chucho and I with no other music; just the two of us singing and playing world class Cuban boleros,” he said.

Dyango, whose real name is Jose Gomez Romero, arrived in Cuba to participate in the Varadero 2008 World Music Festival that took place June 11-15 at the beach resort.

Besides the concerts in Varadero and Havana, Dyango gave three small performances at the Melia Cohiba Hotel last weekend.

Before leaving the Kart Marx, Dyango promised the audience that he “would try to return, maybe next year.”
