Music of Granma, Cuba


In any study of the patriotic and cultural history of Cuba, it is unavoidable to stop at the footprint left by the Bayameses. On the grounds of Granma’s music, it is unfortunate that we haven’t deepened enough on monumental works such as La Bayamesa, by Céspedes, Castillo y Fornaris, the anthem of Pedro (Perucho) Figueredo, that reached national character, or Mujer bayamesa, composed in that city by Sindo Garay. But there are also other musical contributions that Granma, in its five hundred years of existence, has made to Cuban music.
