The Argentinean singer Fito Páez today offers at the Havana’s Theater Karl Marx a great concert for the 30 years of its CD “Giros” as a closure of a Latin American tour
The relationship with the Caribbean nation started with his first visit to the country, to the point that from that moment nothing stopped exciting him, “even when in the 90’s Cubans called skinny chickens Fito Páez”.
During a press conference upon his arrival in Havana, the author of “El amor después del amor” he declared to Prensa Latina that Cuba is his home, a place where he feels loved, challenged, protected, and therefore he is sure ” the concert here will be a bomb”.
Authorities from the company PM Records, responsible for producing the show, assured this reporter that two days ago the more than 5,500 seats of the Karl Marx were sold.
At the headquarters of PM Records, the rock singer explained he will perform all tracks on the CD “Giros” and after that he will sing hits of other moments of his musical career which started in 1979 when he founded the group Neolalia with school friends.
The musician thanked the Cuban musician Pablo Milanés, to whom he owed his first visit to the island and this return, and who is also expected to appear on stage together with Páez tonight.
Páez has won five Latin Grammy Awards, and he also was recognized in 1995 with the Konex Platinum Award as the best rock songwriter of the decade in Argentina.
Recently, he has ventured into filmmaking, but without hurry, he added, before ending the meeting with the press, because in the meantime he prepares the edition of two new books (one with Editorial Planeta) and another CD.
