COULD YOU SLEEP PEACEFULLY AFTER THE SIGNING LAST NIGHT?

"I ha­ve be­en able to rest for a few hours, be­cau­se I know it is a his­to­ric agre­e­ment and, as I told the press and the aut­ho­ri­ti­es and per­so­na­li­ti­es the­re, after signing it we ha­ve ahe­ad a lot of work to do: Cuban mu­sic is so di­ver­se and rich that it de­ser­ves much mo­re pu­blic and new plat­forms of dif­fu­si­on be­cau­se it is de­man­ded so by the con­su­mers”.

WHAT OR WHO LED YOU TO CUBAN MU­SIC?

"I always wan­ted to come to know the is­land, be­cau­se I had put my­self in con­tact with Cuban mu­sic long be­fo­re. I re­ad about its le­gen­dary fi­gu­res, I lis­te­ned to many mu­sic al­bums, be­fo­re ar­ri­ving here, be­cau­se I felt mo­ti­va­ted by the Bu­e­na Vis­ta So­ci­al Club do­cu­men­tary film, and I wan­ted to in­ves­ti­ga­te mo­re about the his­tory of the gen­re. I ha­ve stu­di­ed this to­pic a lot be­fo­re pro­po­sing this agre­e­ment. And on all four oc­ca­si­ons, I ha­ve pre­fer­red the Par­que Cen­tral Ho­tel be­cau­se you can go out and walk down the stre­ets of Old Ha­va­na. I like to tra­vel with my fa­mily to pla­ces that provide me with know­led­ge, beyond what a be­ach can of­fer. So I to­ok them

DO YOU HA­VE ANY ANECDOTE TO TELL, SO­MET­HING THAT HAS GREATLY IMPACTED YOU?

I do not ha­ve a par­ti­cu­lar anecdote, but I do ha­ve an im­por­tant per­cep­ti­on. I was im­pres­sed by the vi­sit to the Es­cu­e­la Na­ci­o­nal de Arte (Na­ti­o­nal Sc­ho­ol of Art,) and es­pe­ci­ally the mu­sic fa­culty, the ima­ge of how they te­ach it, in com­mu­nity with their te­ac­hers, who are mu­si­ci­ans too; sha­ring the ins­tru­ments, le­ar­ning to­get­her, without dif­fe­ren­ces of any kind, so­met­hing that says a lot about its te­ac­hing sys­tem. That's why they be­co­me such go­od mu­si­ci­ans... I ha­ve not se­en anyt­hing like that in my bu­si­ness trips around the world.

HA­VE THE WORDS OF PRAISE BE­FO­RE THE PRESS FOR YOUR COUNTERPART, THE EGREM, BE­EN PART OF THE ADVERTISING AND BU­SI­NESS THEME?

They we­re ne­ces­sary words to an es­sen­ti­al agre­e­ment we are in­teres­ted in and which we want to work as a bu­si­ness. But the truth is that we ha­ve found, in ad­di­ti­on to pro­fes­si­o­na­lism, a hu­man qua­lity in the EGREM te­am. I ho­pe everything is for mu­tu­al suc­cess. to Tri­ni­dad, Ci­en­fu­e­gos, San­ta Cla­ra; to see old cars, to le­arn from Cu­bans, to lis­ten to their his­tory, to fe­el that mu­sic is everyw­he­re.
