Los Zafiros




"Los Zafiros formed in the Cuban capital of Havana in 1962. Their music was a mix of doo-wop, ballads, boleros, samba, tumbaos and twists. It was practically doo-wop with their own unique Cuban twist. Today only 2 members are alive, Manuel Galban and Miguel Cancio. Ignacio died in 1981 at 37 from complications of several heart attacks. Kike died at the same age in 1982 from cirrhosis of the liver. El Chino, beset by severe vision, speech and drinking problems, lived alone back in Cayo Hueso until his death on August 8, 1995 at age 56." (from wikipedia)

Las Hermanas Benitez - Cuban go go/soul






Las Hermanas Benítez, fueron un grupo musical cubano de la década de los '60. Estaba integrado por Juanita, Haydee, Petry, Carmen y Beatriz, hijas del ex-ministro cubano de Trabajo, Francisco Benítez. Posiblemente inspiradas en el éxito del Cuarteto d'Aida, comenzaron muy jóvenes con su grupo, llegando a finales de los '50 a la televisión cubana. Viajaron a los Estados Unidos y México, donde aparecieron en la película de Cantinflas "Sube y baja" filmada en 1958. De esa película es la canción "Corazón de melón", tema que las hizo muy conocidas. Siguieron los viajes por América y Europa, dónde aparecieron en una película de Dino de Laurentis, "Yo amo, tú amas". Llegaron a España, y allí el amor acabó con el grupo: Carmen y Beatriz se casaron, mientras que sus hermanas siguieron cantando, pero no por mucho tiempo.
