Composer of Guantanamera Born 100 Years Ago
In karaoke bars from Lima to Beijing, at street festivals from San Antonio to Madrid, and in the heart of La Habana, one song can be heard: Guantanamera.

Perhaps no other song illustrates the Cuban identity as much as this one, which has been covered by artists all over the world. Because of its popularity, its author is often noted as "Canción Popular" -- as in, it doesn't have an author -- but that isn't the case.
