This Friday, the former member of the legendary quartet “Las D’Aida” and famous orchestra “Buena Vista Social Club”, will sing at Santa Ana Square, in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Next Saturday, June 10, she will be featured at Tenerife Leal Theater, as the so-called “girlfriend of Feeling” announced in her Facebook account.

Radio Cadena Habana found out that Omara Portuondo will be accompanied on stage by singer Olga Cerpa and Canary Islands popular music group “Mestisay.”

They will sing traditional Cuban songs and melodies from that autonomous region of Spain.

In the last few days, Canary Islands mass media, particularly radio and television, have been broadcasting highlights of Portuondo’s lengthy and successful career. This lady has become a true ambassadress of Cuban music.
