Benny Moré statue. 37th Street and 54th Avenue.
El Benny was an emblematic figure of Cuban music, born in Santa Isabel de las Lajas, a municipality belonging to our province. Immortalized as the Barbarian of the Rhythm by the unique sound of his musical compositions. Perhaps the fact of being self-taught has magnified the myth, because, until today it is a mystery how he was able to direct, compose and interpret without having studied music. His tomb, located in the cemetery of Lajas, was declared a national monument since 2009. This statue was made by the artist José Villa Soberón; work erected in bronze, without pedestal. It was placed on the Paseo del Prado in 2004.
