Two pillars of Brazilian music, Ana Luiza and Luis Felipe Gama, highlighted here today the warm welcome given to them by the Cuban public in their two performances at the National Fine Arts Museum and Casa de las Americas.

 In remarks to Prensa Latina before returning to their country, the artists also referred to several workshops offered to students from the University of the Arts, the Amadeo Roldan Conservatory and participants in the local Jojazz contest.

 Luiza, a singer and composer, and Gama, a pianist, arranger and composer, agreed on saying that Cuba remains the hope of the dispossessed and has gained ground as world heritage.

 Gama announced another four concerts, scheduled for April and May, 2013, at the National Fine Arts Museum aiming at a live recording of a CD and a DVD with Cuban instrumentalists Jorge Reyes (bass player), Enrique Pla (drummer) and Edgar Martinez (percussion).

 During this first visit to Cuba, Luiza and Gama were joined in their performances by Cuban young singer song-writer Haydee Milanes, whom they had met in June in Brazil.

 The three musicians paid tribute to famous Cuban composer and singer Marta Valdes (National Music Prize laureate, 2007), and started recording a CD with some of her most popular songs.
