Trova musician Roberto Novo wins two nominations to 20-21 Cubadisco Awards
Havana, May 4 (RHC)-- Trova musician Roberto Novo won two nominations to the 20-21 Cubadisco Awards in the category of children’s music for the Volumes 4 and 5 of his record project entitled ‘los niños cantan la trova cubana.’
Recorded in the Eusebio Delfin Studios of the record company Bis Music, both albums revisit emblematic Cuban classical pieces.
The first album entitled ‘Homenaje a la tía Rosa’ includes new, arranged versions of children’s tunes by singer-songwriter Rosa Campos.
The second album dedicated to Bartolomé Maximiliano Moré Gutiérrez –better known as Benny More’s music, was released in 2019 on occasion of Benny’s 100th birthday anniversary.
In statements to Cuban television, Novo said at first, they thought the kids would find it really difficult to sing Benny’s songs, but ‘it was quite the opposite,’ he stressed.
Volumes 4 and 5 of the record project ‘los niños cantan la trova cubana’ feature the winners of a children’s contest, initiated by the trova musician in 2015.
