Pablo Milanés’ Havana
Pablo Milanés is returning to the Karl Marx to give a once-only concert: “Mi Habana.” The show that will be dedicated to the Cuban capital will be today Friday September 7, precisely at the time of Havana’s cannon blast.
The concert will feature from classics of his work to some of the most recent compositions. Thus it will be a tour of “Para vivir” or “Ya ves”, going through “Yolanda” or “De qué callada manera”, up to his latest creations, like “Vestida de mar.”
In “Mi Habana” Milanés will be accompanied by a format that has been closely working with him for a year and a half, made up by Sergio Félix Raveiro “El indio” on the bass, Miguel Núnez on the piano, and Osmani Sánchez in percussion. The guests who will join him on stage are a total surprise, a gift that Pablo will make to all the Karl Marx public.
