Magazine AM: PM no. 7

The great creators of magazines say that the number seven marks the coming of age of a publication; that anyone launches one day into this romantic adventure and publishes a first installment, but, in the end, the most important thing is to survive the magical number. In Magazine AM:PM We do not know if the enigmatic digit brings us good fortune and a long life, but we are sure that this seventh edition comes amid many doubts and few certainties for the music industry, one of the most affected in the year of crazy that we are living Faced with this scenario, and from the cover signed by Robertiko Ramos, we set out to find some answers in the first report that opens the issue.

In this volume we also settle an old debt: to investigate the overabundance of music festivals in Cuba. As to talk about the future we must also look to the past, we made a trip to the 90s when, after almost 30 years of Egrem's monopoly in the Cuban record industry, new labels appeared that competed and energized the music scene ; We search among the foundations of the tenth to understand its present in the XXI century; and we also peek into the story of one of our most charismatic promoters. The adventure is completed by the usual reviews, a fragment of an unpublished novel generously given by Legna Rodríguez Iglesias - one of the most interesting voices in current Cuban literature - to our readers; a poster-faced gallery by Ixchel Casado; and the final dialogue with Osmani Espinosa, a revealing exchange in more ways than one.

If the number seven marks our coming of age, then it must be celebrated as it deserves.
