House of Music Broadens Cultural Options in Las Tunas

The House of Music is located in the heart of the cityLas Tunas.- This city continues expanding its cultural and recreational options with the completion and opening of the House of Music, an old yearning of its inhabitants, especially the lovers and growers of this artistic expression.

The institution, named after the famous pianist Emiliano Salvador, from the northern municipality of Puerto Padre, is located in the heart of the city, in a spacious house that was completely restored and re-structured.

Iraida William, its director, told ACN that the center will defend the Cuban traditional music, with groups and soloists from the locality or other provinces, but there will also be opportunities for those who like other genres.

A room for concert music is also available, while another space is destined for troubadours and in one area there will be gatherings about "... the most beautiful form of beauty", as said José Martí referring to the music.

Photos of Emiliano Salvador, other artists of the province and musical instruments are part of the decoration; as well as a sculptural mural, and figurative and abstract paintings that show elements of the eclectic architecture that characterizes the city of Las Tunas.

Artists Rogelio Ricardo, José Miguel Costa and Jonni Sterlich placed a sculpture depicting a woman with a harp in her hands, reminiscent of Euterpe, the muse of music in Greek mythology. This medium-format work enriches the three-dimensional art heritage of Las Tunas, recognized as "the capital of sculpture" in Cuba.
