SANTA ISABEL DE LAS LAJAS
This is where Bartolomé “Benny” Moré was born, a man who became the most popular singer of boleros, sones and guarachas in the history of Cuban music.
Without studying music, he was able to write quite a number of songs and compositions, that came to life by way of the orchestra that he directed during the last years of his turbulent life.
Benny, among his vast repertoire, dedicated a song to his homeland and another to the neighbouring city of Cienfuegos.
