Havana, Nov 12 (Prensa Latina) The second edition of the Cuba va conmigo cultural festival will close today at the Avellaneda Hall of the National Theater with a concert by Cuban musician Nachito Herrera.
The event, organized by the Ministries of Culture and Foreign Affairs, was held since November 2 in several venues of the capital with the participation of more than 70 Cuban artists and writers living in 14 countries.
On this occasion, the festival had a hybrid format, both on-site and virtual, and included music, dance, plastic arts, literature and theater, Chanel Martell Ibarra, director of communication of the Ministry of Culture (Mincult), explained exclusively to Prensa Latina.
The program covered several theaters and cultural spaces, while the virtual presentations could be enjoyed through Mincult’s YouTube channel, where several artists who could not attend sent their presentations, Martell added.
Martell also said that the importance of the event, “has been evidenced in each of the presentations, the love for Cuba that persists in each of these artists who are in other countries but continue to promote Cuban culture and accept with all their love to participate in events of this kind”.
“From culture we would like it to be clear that Cuba is open to all Cubans,” Martell said.
