Conveying emotions, breaking through mental inertia and stimulating reflective exercise are maxims of Néstor Martí’s artistic career. Capturing the essence of Havana, her eclecticism; her history wrapped in facades, motifs, walls and cobblestones, the energy of her people, her unique smell and sounds, is another leitmotif for the architect.

Not many know that the real beginnings of Alexander Abreu within the universal language, music, were as a singer. While he began studying as a trumpeter at 10 years old, he had already begun singing in his native city of Cienfuegos, in the choral group “Los chicuelos del mar”. At only 11 years old he joined this group directed by teacher Rosa Campo, who he remembers as an incredible woman.
