Renowned singer Omara Portuondo, one of the most emblematic voices of Cuba, will present next Thursday her most recent CD in the Metropolitan Theatre of this capital, performance seen as a transcendental artistic event in Mexico.
From Havana, the "Queen of Feeling", gave an interview to La Jornada newspaper and said that the new album is an acknowledgement to the support of the public, musicians and the country music of her nation during almost 60 years.
The disc is a compilation of songs from the past six decades that I share with my people, to whom I owe my love for living, Omara told the newspaper that publishes on Monday the whole interview in a complete page on its cultural section.
The renowned singer of the Buena Vista Social Club, recently conferred the Latin Grammy Award, said that this is the best CD of her life.
She will play some pieces at the Metropolitan, where she will perform together with an extraordinary group made up of some musicians with whom she recorded the CD, La Jornada pointed out.
She will play with Cuban and Brazilian musicians like Swami Junior, (musical director and guitarist), Omar González (double bass), Roberto Fonseca, (piano), Rodney Barreto, (drum), and Andrés Coayo, (percussion).
