A tribute to artists and Cuban music of the 1980s and 90s, is what the popular Cuban singer, trumpet player and composer Alexander Abreu, leader of the group Havana D’Primera, offers in his most recent production.

Será que se acabó should be released before the end of 2020.

“It’s the most attractive way of rescuing Cuban music and showing it to our youth, adding ‘spoonfuls’ of what’s current and honoring the composers who had ideas for songs that were the greatest,” Abreu said.

The disc is a co-production from Abdala Productions studios and the Catalan music company Páfata, featuring hits by Los Van Van, Elio Revé y su Charangón, La Charanga Habanera and NG La Banda, among other groups that distinguish popular dance music in Cuba.

Alexander Abreu and Havana D’Primera presented their latest in an online appearance October 13, broadcast on Cuban television’s Clave channel and the group’s platforms.

“The world needs happiness, that’s why I try to convey love in every lyric I write,” the artist wrote on his Facebook page, along with the poster of the online event that will arrive under the title Al mal tiempo, buena música (In bad weather, good music), as “a gift for my people, in Cuba and around the world.”
