Posted: 27-Nov-15 14:33

Next week will be hotting up in Cuba with the arrival of two things: the prestiged Havana Film Festival kicking off on 3rd December and the arrival of one of Latin music's hottest queens, Olga Tanon. Cuban fans are in for a real treat as the twice Grammy award-winning performer will be in Cuba next week to give two free concerts, one in Santiago de Cuba and another in the island's capital of Havana.

Olga Tanon to perform again in Cuba next week with two free concerts

It seems celebrities nowadays can’t get enough of Cuba and keep coming back for more. Not only are they flooding the island in increasing numbers but it looks as though some like it so much they want to repeat the experience over and over.

Such is the case of Puerto Rican merengue queen, Olga Tañon, who, after now having performed twice in the island (once in 2009 during a "Peace Without Borders" concert in Havana’s Revolution Square and more recently in July this year with a one-night-only impromptu performance during a concert by Havana D’ Primera in the capital) is back to fulfil her promise to Cubans to offer them free concerts.

Aptly titled "Promesa Cumplida" (Fulfilled Promise) her musical tour of Cuba next week will see her perform first in Cuba’s most famous eastern city, Santiago de Cuba, on 5th Decemeber at 3 p.m. The concert will be staged at (yet another revolution square) Plaza de la Revolucion Mayor General Antonio Maceo Grajales, at the heart of the city of Santiago.

To mark the occasion the Asamblea Municipal del Poder Popular de Santiago de Cuba will honour her with the title of “Distinguished Visitor”.

After the concert she will stay in Santiago for a few days before heading to Havana for her second concert which will be taking place on 12th December but the details of its exact locations haven’t yet been revealed. It’s likely that she could repeat her first experience performing at the capital’s Plaza de la Revolucion as she did in 2009.

During her two performances Ms Tañon will be sharing stage with various popular Cuban singers and musicians, including Descemer Bueno, Cesar Lopez, Qva Libre, Pancho Amat and Evaristo Denis, as well as being joined in stage by some students from Cuba’s various Schools of Art. In each concert she will be performing approximately 20 songs, including one accompanied by Descemer Bueno and another with Qva Libre.

She will bring her band along with her although the participation of a few Cuban student musicians from the Conservatorio Estaban Salas will be added to her performances. The whole ensemble will be direct by renowned Cuban musician, Joaquin Betancourt. Both of her concerts in Havana and Santiago will be recorded and aired live on Cuban TV.

Olga Tañon will arrive in Cuba next Wednesday 2nd December and ahead of her concert on the 5th she will devote her time to humanitarian and personal purposes, among them a press conference, a visit to the Escuela Especial Frank Pais school and a pilgrimage to the Basilica of El Cobre.

Ever since her first performance in Cuba as part of the Juanes-led, "Paz Sin Fronteras" (Peace without Borders) concert, the sassy and energetic Puerto Rican songstress has been charmed by the warmth of her Cuban audience and fans, hence why she promised to be back and she will soon be delivering on that promise.
