In November there is an opportunity to Celebrate the famous Cuban boleros singer, guitarist and composer Carlos Puebla during the festival held from November 29 - December 2 in Manzanillo in Granma province. From 1962 Pueba was a regular performer in La Bodeguita del medio, a bar-restaurant in Old Havana which was a favourite haunt of Cuban and foreign intellectuals.
Politically he stood beside Fidel Castro before the 1959 Revolution. He was called the singer of the revolution or El Cantor de la Revolución. In 1965, the night after Fidel Castro's speech announcing Che Guevara's departure from the government, Puebla, seized by passion, composed what would become his most celebrated work, Hasta Siempre, Comandante, a true declaration of love for and hope in Che.
