2. NORMITA SUÁREZ y JESÚS ALVARIÑO TRAYECTORIA Y LEGADO. Precursores de la radio y la televisión en Cuba y Latinoamérica - Lourdes Alvariño Castiñeira

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £22.50  - Click book title for availability and further details

Normita Suarez and Jesus Alvariño were two popular artists from radio and television in Cuba as well as in exile, an exile that was imposed by the lack of freedom in their homeland. Jesus was an important artist from the 1940s, 50s and 60s in programs like Tamakún, Los tres Villalobos (written by Armando Couto, it was for years the most listened to radio program in Cuba and other Latin American countries), La Taberna de Pedro, where he played “Pedro el Polaco” (already on television). Normita Suárez was also an artist from a young age and excelled in many programs such as «Casos y cosas de casa» (Cases and Household Things) as well as others. She also starred in theater and movies.

But not only in Cuba were these two artists well know —both crossed borders and were recognized throughout Latin America. In the wide photo gallery included in this book, you can see the friendships they had with the greatest artists of their time. They also stood out for their Christian ideals, not only in their personal and family life but also in their evangelizing task. That is why the letter from Mons. Agustín Román, Auxiliary Bishop of Miami, is included on the back cover.

This book is not only about the lives of these talented artists, it is also a history of Cuban radio and television because, through them, we are presented with many of the best Cuban artists and their most important moments. It includes a selection of articles by Jesús Alvariño with current themes, humor and Christian reflections.

Lourdes Alvariño Suárez de Castiñeira was the editor of this book. She not only saves the memory of her parents for posterity, but also that of that golden age of Cuban radio and television
