The diva of the famous band, Omara Portuondo, expressed her hopes for “the goodbye not to be true”, during exclusive declarations made to Suenacubano.
She also considered it is “obviously” a physical retirement, but the band members will keep “exchanging culture and love. We will always defend Cuban music and the music of the world,” stated the famous singer.
