Magazine AM: PM no. 5
The fifth number of Magazine AM:PM will surprise many of our readers in quarantine. And in quarantine, they have finished editing and designing the content that we propose so that they remain connected from home with music and those who make it possible.
In the magazine we have set out to investigate in depth the representation and participation of women in the Cuban musical ecosystem, asking ourselves how to (re)build it from a truly diverse action, with opportunities and equitable recognition. Therefore, this number 5, feminine almost entirely, is not accidental.
The protagonists of this edition are then Cary Diez, musicologist and defender of the rumba; Maria Teresa Vera and her perjured woman; singer and songwriter Danay Suárez; Ela O`Farril, Teresita Fernández and Omara Portuondo —who appear on their 90th birthday and through the memories of another great one: Marta Valdés—; and about twenty women who, representing the many who work for and for music, help us rebuild the musical ecosystem in Cuba in the 21st century.
These pages -which also contain reportages, reviews, interviews, a photo gallery- open with the great cover of Diana Carmenate, our guest designer for this edition, where the wink towards women and music is evident. So now you know, stay home, and read these texts to make the (self)quarantine more bearable.
