Billy Marrero & Friends: Guantanamera
Musical Director and percussionist Billy Marrero and his friends take us on a musical journey as we rediscover some of Cuba’s greatest songs in honor of Cuban national hero and beloved poet José Julián Martí Pérez. Marti was a Cuban poet, essayist, journalist, translator, professor, and publisher, who is considered a national hero and an important figure in Latin American literature. After his death, one of his poems from the book, “Versos Sencillos” (Simple Verses) was adapted to the song “Guantanamera,” which has become the definitive patriotic song of Cuba.
This Family Saturday Series event forms part of the 4th Annual El Quixote Festival - José Martí produced by Artist Studio Project.
