HAVANA, June 20 (Prensa Latina) The popular band Buena Fe will open the summer cultural program in Cuba with a big concert in the Karl Marx Theater to promote his new compilation album ”Soy”, which targets the international market.
The band will perform on June 26, 27 and 28 with a repertoire including several of their greatest hits as well as new songs such as ‘Casanova’, ‘Cecilia Valdes y la Bella Durmiente’, ‘Orare’ and ‘Dame Guerra’.
Buena Fe lead singer Israel Rojas told Prensa Latina that this 13-track album was produced without trade concessions and keeps the original arrangements already known by the national audience.
“At first we were reluctant to make this album, but launching us to the international market while keeping our essence convinced us to endeavor to this project”, he added.
The international label ‘Metamorfosis’, along with Sony Music, are responsible for promoting the album ‘Soy’ in the Hispanic market; while the Company of Musical Recordings and Editions (EGREM) will do so in the national scene.
Argentina, Chile and Uruguay are some of the countries they plan to visit with this new production. Meanwhile, concerts in Cuba will be a sort of re-encounter with Buena Fe music, since they include well known songs such as ‘La culpa’, ‘Catalejo’, ‘Si yo fuera Fabelo’, ‘Despedida’, ‘Noviembre’, ‘Soy’ and ‘Pi 3,14’.
These concerts will also have a sui generis staging, based on the work by the Cuban artist Alicia de la Campa, who also illustrated the CD.
