This is the best audience I have ever sung to, stated Pablo Milanes at the beginning of his unique concert Dias de Luz, on Tuesday, at the Havana’s Sports City Coliseum, stage to which he got on in a wheelchair.


For over two hours, Pablo was accompanied by Miguelito Nuñez on the piano and Cari Varona on the cello, just to make up an incredible trio and hence perform several songs from Pablo’s vast repertoire.


The concert began with his renowned song Comienzo y final de una verde mañana, a song composed in the 1980s.


Milanes used the occasion to perform one of his most recent songs entitled Cuando tú no estás (in duet with Nuñez), which is dedicated to his life partner.


He explained that this song is one of the 10 that will be part of his most recent musical album, with music by the experienced pianist.


The founder of the Nueva Trova Movement in Cuba, who had not performed in Cuba since 2019, highlighted that the audience was the star of the concert and people deserved to enjoy his music as well.


Comienzo y final de una verde mañana, De que callada manera (Nicolas Guillen’s poem set to music), El pecado original, El tiempo, el implacable, el que pasó, Para vivir, and El breve espacio en que no estás were all songs offered by Milanes for an audience of all ages.


Songs that made up the soundtrack of renowned Cuban audiovisuals were also performed: No ha sido fácil and Ámame como soy, from the TV series Algo más que sonar and the movie Una novia para David, respectively.


The author of the song Yolanda boasts the National Music Award and his singular sonority exalts the Nueva Trova Movement, of which he is one the top representatives along with Silvio Rodríguez and Noel Nicola.
