Miami, May 26 – A posthumous double album by the Cuban singer-songwriter Pablo Milanés was released this Friday in its entirety. The album, entitled “Amor y Salsa – 80 Aniversario,” was recorded before Milanés’ death and features collaborations with artists such as Alejandro Sanz, Gilberto Santa Rosa, Juanes, Ana Belén, and Diego Torres.
The Tribute Album
The album is a tribute to Milanés’ work, this time in the salsa genre. The renowned artists who collaborated on the project expressed their admiration for the work of the Cuban singer-songwriter by performing their own interpretations of his classic songs.
The project includes collaborations with Andy Montañez, Oscar D’León, Rosario, Ismael Miranda, Luis Enrique, La India, Francisco Céspedes, El Canario, Aymée Nuviola, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Yotuel, Caco Senante, Victor Manuelle, and Isaac Delgado.
Milanés’ career has seen him approach a diversity of musical genres, from tradition to modernity, from ‘filin’ to the new song, and from jazz to rumba, the son, or the bolero. This interpretative versatility is expanded with this “world premiere” in the salsa genre, orchestrated and arranged by Dagoberto González Jr.
The album features 20 songs that make up the album, including classic songs from Milanés’ career such as “El breve espacio en que no está,” “Para vivir,” and “Yo no te pido,” among others. Milanés also includes lesser-known themes and some unpublished ones that correspond to very recent compositions.
Recorded between Havana, Madrid, Miami, Puerto Rico, New Jersey, and New York, this album “adds to the enormous legacy that the Cuban composer left us throughout his artistic career and can now be enjoyed in various formats: 2CD with 24-page booklet, 2 LP Format, and digital album.” Fans of Milanés’ work will undoubtedly appreciate this tribute album that pays homage to his impressive career as one of the most prominent singer-songwriters of his generation.
