Published on June 14, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

HAVANA, Cuba (ACN) -- "El Eliades que soy" is the title of the latest album by renowned Cuban musician Eliades Ochoa, which the Bis Music record label presented at Fresa y Chocolate Cultural Cinematographic Center.

The album, recorded at EGREM’s Siboney Studios, based in Santiago de Cuba province, consists of a CD-DVD, and is a tribute to Ochoa’s 35-year career with the Patria Quartet.

“Through this work we wanted to remake the classic songs that made Eliades famous along with Patria Quartet; so 16 hits by great composers, including Nico Saquito, Miguel Matamoros, Pepe Sanchez and Compay Segundo were chosen,” producer José Manuel García told reporters.

Along with the new audio recording, a documentary was filmed about the life of the musician that bears the same title of the CD.

The DVD, lasting 56 minutes, is part of the book “Eliades Ochoa, de la trova y para el mundo,” by Grisel Sande, and was the driving force through which the story line was drawn, Garcia said.

“I am very happy with this work,” Ochoa said and confessed that he enjoyed recording this album, which includes sones and guarachas that were part of Patria Quartet's repertoire in the late 70s of last century.

During the conference, Ela Ramos, Bis Music general manager, noted that the album was presented to the 2014 Latin Grammys, and they have high expectations because Eliades' work is highly valued by the Academy.
