HAVANA TIMES, Aug. 29 – Yes, everyone is welcome to a new cultural space that has no entrance fee.  The Dulce Maria Loynaz Center, located at 19th and E streets in Vedado, is the place for concerts at 5:00 p.m. sharp on Thursday afternoons.

The opening occasion began with the voice of the great female Cuban poet, Dulce Maria Loynaz (1902-1997) and a poem dedicated to Havana’s Almendares River.

Haydee Milanes was the guest for the opening of the space called Hamaca (Hammock).  Her tender voice and pop-jazz songs ended in style an afternoon that announced rain but ended up sunny, as has happened most of this summer.

The next edition of Hamaca takes place in October since the Center will close in September for repairs.  Singer/songwriter Gerardo Alfonso will be the guest performer along with readings of some of the great Latin American poets.

The Thursday afternoon sessions will no doubt draw a good audience of people wanting to relax and enjoy.   For more information or to confirm the concerts call 835 2732.
