Ernesto Lecuona (1895-1963), known as “The Cuban Gershwin” is Cuba’s most prolific composer, having composed an estimated 600 works, including 400 songs. His 600 compositions ranged from songs to piano compositions, from ballets to zarzuelas, and from film scores to orchestral suites.

Lecuona’s music remains popular in Latin America and Spain currently, but continues to be relatively unknown in the United States. I will present facts on Lecuona’s life and his contribution to Afro-Cuban music.
