Havana.- The Original de Manzanillo Orchestra, founded in the Cuban eastern city of the same name, has its own recording studio, equipped with state-of-the-art technology.

According to experts, the San Jose Studio released its first CD, containing 12 songs presented at the “Rayitos de Sol” Music Festival, an annual event to promote children’s music and singers in the province.

The new studio is equipped with a 32-channel digital console that can be enlarged to 128 channels.

The studio, which resulted from the Original de Manzanillo Orchestra’s own effort, will pave the way for the development of musical creation in eastern Cuba.

Founded in December 21, 1963, the Original de Manzanillo Orchestra, has made over 50 international tours and is widely known by such songs as “En Cuba el son no se ha muerto”, “A mi tierra”, “Mi sombrero de yarey” and “El caracol”.

To whom it may concern,
I am looking for an email or phone number for the different recording studios in Cuba. If you were able to pass this on to me I would be grateful indeed. I am a veteran recording,touring, singer songwriter and producer from Canada. I have visited Cuba on several occasions for vacatios but this last trip this past November 2004 reminded me of how much I like the Cuban culture and specially the music. I would like to be able to use my extensive knowledge of music and studio experience to produce some Cuban artists in order to bring a different, sort of North American sounding product, to a Cuban sound. By that I mean a polished sound in order to realy bring forward the Cuban sound. If you could help me out with contacts I would be very appreciative.
Kind regards,
