Madrid, Spain – Cuban singer Caridad Hierrezuelo began a tour of Spain the second week of May to launch her recent record entitled “Como yo quería“. The singer is known for her “guarachas” and “sones”, that identify her as the “guarachera de Oriente”.
During her over 40-year career, the Cuban singer has sang with important singers such as Benny More, Eliades Ochoa, Los Van Van and La Vieja Trova Santiaguera, among others. In June, Hierrezuelo will tour the rest of Europe.
