Festival de la Trova Longina.

This is a music festival held in Santa Clara. It is named after a well-known trova song composed in 1918 by popular Cuban musician Manuel Corona.
The festival, organized by the Hermanos Saíz Association in Villa Clara, was born in the hardest years of the special period, in 1997, when for economic reasons different cultural spaces disappeared in Santa Clara, as in the whole country.
Trova is a style of music that was very popular in Cuba and there are many very famous Cuban songs written in this style that are known around the world, and still very much loved and remembered today.
