    Omara Portuondo 85 Tour With Special Guests Roberto Fonseca, Anat Cohen & Regina Carter Omara PortuondoWith our music we Cubans have exported more dreams and pleasures than with our tobacco, more sweetness and energy than with all our sugar. Afro-Cuban music is fire, savour and smoke; it is syrup, charm and relief. It is like sonorous rum, which brings people together and makes them treat each other as equals. It brings the senses to dynamic life. Fernando Ortiz There was fresh spring rain in Havana when I strolled into Egrem Studios in the first weeks of the new millennium, a studio where decades of gorgeous music have seeped into the walls. Hearing the warm voice of Omara Portuondo live and close up is always a joy and there she was, singing her version of He Perdio Contigo (Im lost without you) a typically swooning , romantic song. Omara was recording an album a dark, smoky, two-in-the-morning record, full of yearning and lost love as producer Nick Gold described it. The album was her first solo album since the miraculous success of the Buena Vista Social Club. It was through that record and Wim Wenders film of the same name that many non-Cubans discovered Omara. For Wenders and so many others, the highlight of the film was the touching duet of her and Ibrahim Ferrer singing Silencio And my soul, sad and sorrowful/wants to keep secret its bitter pain. As they take the applause, a tear forms in Omaras eye and Ibrahim removes his handkerchief from his pocket and gently wipes away the tear. This event is all ages
