      Hilario Durán

      Cuba is, and it has  always been since the Colonial period, one of the powerhouses of music in this side of the Atlantic. In this edition of Fiesta! we visit (or revisit, in some cases), the music of a handful of Cuban composers born between the 30’s and the 50’s: Héctor Angulo (b.1932), Carlos Fariñas (1934-2002), Paquito D’Rivera (b.1948), Andrés Alén (b.1950), Hilario Durán (b.1953). The only exception is the 19th century composer and pioneer of Cuban nationalist movement, Ignacio Cervantes.
