(Prensa Latina – Cumbancha) Madrid, Spain – Cuban singer and composer Pablo Milanes will give a concert this Saturday in Tenerife, Spain, as part of a tour that includes several cities in the Canary Islands, plus Barcelona, Zaragoza, Cordoba, La Coruña and Bilbao.
Milanes’ representative, Maria de los Angeles Quintana, said that the founder of the Nueva Trova movement is accompanied by a band inspired in new concepts and enhanced with four metal instruments and an oboe. She said that this is not a definitive change but rather an experiment and includes arrangements of fellow countryman Coco Freeman. The Spanish entity that sponsors the tour said it will continue until mid October.
The tour is aimed at promoting his 33-song CD Anthology, a collection of his best known songs. The period he remained away from the stage for health reasons, he used to work on his CD “Feeling 6,” that takes a retrospective look at the 1960s when the movement took its first steps and is represented by composers Cesar Portillo de la Luz, Marta Valdes and the late Jose Antonio Mendez.
