In Chile Liuba María Hevia, essential voice of Cuban music

Liuba María Hevia, one of the most significant female voices of the Nueva Trova Cubana, will perform today in Chile to delight the public with an intimate concert that will cover the best of her discography.

The composer and singer par excellence will perform tonight at the concert hall of Radio Universidad de Chile, three decades after her first visit to this country.

With more than twenty albums to her credit, Liuba has ventured into genres as varied as song, habanera, guajira, son, bolero and ballads.

In her extensive career, she has shared stages and recordings with Silvio Rodríguez, Pablo Milanés, Marta Gómez, Manuel García, Omara Portuondo, Chucho Valdés, Los Van Van, among many others.

One of his special qualities is his work for children, with works by the poet and troubadour Ada Elba Pérez, his own songs and the interpretation of classics from the Spanish-American children’s repertoire.

In 2012, the United Nations Children’s Fund appointed her Goodwill Ambassador for her vocation and work not only in theatres, but also in working-class neighbourhoods.

The performer has won the Cubadisco Award on several occasions, and at the age of 31 she was awarded the Distinction for National Culture, the highest award given to those who make significant contributions to Cuban art.

Author of well-known pieces such as Tu amor es el canto mío, Si me falta tu sonrisa and Coloreando la esperanza, she was here for the first time in 1991 to participate in the Santiago International Fair.

Now she returns to this capital after a successful performance in Bolivia. Liuba «is one of the fundamental artists of our times, an excellence in the art of contemporary song in Cuba», said the singer-songwriter Silvio Rodríguez.

Meanwhile, Omara Portuondo, known as the diva of the Buena Vista Social Club, described her as an artist with an impressive talent and a melodic line that gives her the possibility of performing different interpretations of many genres.
