Cubadisco Awards Winners 2020-2021 (complete list)

Like every year, the Cubadisco event allows us to take the pulse of the Cuban record industry. In this 2021 it came with the challenge of summarizing two years of phonographic productions in Cuba, after its cancellation in 2020 due to the pandemic.
Our magazine echoes the winners in this edition.
