In meeting with the press to talk about the show, Nancy Perez, specialist from Pablo Milanes Office, said the singer songwriter will go to the stage with his daughters Haydee, Lynn and Suylén, with whom he has worked in the past.

He will also share with singers Miriam Ramos and Pancho Céspedes, in a sort of tribute to those early creations that opened the way to Pablo in the national sound panorama.

The audience will enjoy themes like Réquiem por un amor, Tú mi desengaño, Ya ves and Mis 22 años, the latter motivated the concert and it is considered by the experts as a creation that was a turning point in the Cuban song in the 1960s.
