The 16th Cubadisco International Music Fair, scheduled for May 19-27 next year here in Havana, will pay tribute to renowned musician, the late the Buena Vista Social Club star Francisco Repilado –better known as Compay Segundo- and other great Cuban guitar players.

Ciro Benemelis, president of the event’s organizing committee, told a press conference on Friday that the fair will also honor Ñico Rojas and Vicente Gonzalez (Guyun), two outstanding Cuban guitar players.

He also announced that Leo Brouwer, one of the world’s greatest guitar players alive, will be the President of Honor of the event, which will be dedicated to this musical instrument.

Benemelis said that the main purpose is to rescue the role of the guitar in Cuban music, particularly as an accompanying instrument.

The opening and closing galas of the event will take place at the Covarrubias Hall of Cuba’s National Theatre.
