Santiago De Cuba, Cuba – Although Eliades Ochoa recently announced his retirement as a trova singer, the Cuban musician acknowledged this week that he will continue singing his music throughout the world, after reconsidering that first decision. “It is difficult to give up the public who listens to my music, I appreciated that during my tour of South America“, said Ochoa, a Grammy award winner and one of the members of Buena Vista Social Club. The singer of “Píntate los labios María” will give a great concert at Cuba’s National Theater on May 17, as part of the activities of the Cubadisco 2001 trade show.
