Havana, Nov 17 (Prensa Latina) Cuban singer Haydée Milanés published a version of the popular song La vida no vale nada (Life is worth nothing), on digital music platforms, performed by her and the renowned Mexican folklorist Lila Downs.
The song is available on major digital distribution platforms such as Spotify, Deezer, Itunes, among other supports.
In this way, the young singer adds value to the Deluxe edition of the album Amor (Love), where she plays 11 songs of the authorship of her father, Pablo Milanés, along with him, one of the founders of the so-called Nueva Trova Cubana, and without a doubt one of the great composers of Latin America.
A few hours ago, Downs achieved the fifth Latin Grammy of her career by winning the award for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album with Salón, lágrimas y deseo (Salon, tears, and desire).
With the intention of making a tribute to the father, Milanés decided to add extra tracks in Amor, a duet with different artists from Cuba and Mexico, among them the diva of the Buena Vista Social Club, Omara Portuondo, with whom she recorded La soledad (Loneliness) and Yolanda, also available in the main digital distribution platforms.
Along with the Mexican Julieta Venegas, the young vocalist played one of the popular themes of her father: Si ella me faltara alguna vez If she were ever missing; with the Cuban Pancho Céspedes she gave new energy to El primer amor (The first love); and added in another piece the guitarist and Mexican singer Rosalía León.
Haydeé Milanés is preparing a concert in Cuba this year, for December 20, at the Mella Theater in Havana, where she would like to share a stage with guests to further promote the phonogram whose title sums up her relationship with her father: Amor.
