Latin » Cuban Traditions » Nueva Trova

Nueva trova is the most important and perhaps the first musical tradition to develop in post-revolutionary Cuba. It means "new ballad" and took until the 1970s to reach an appreciative audience. The stories and the lyrics are not concerned with love and Cubo-centrism but with personal experiences contending with the dichotomies of growing up in a politically uneasy and unstable state. Part of the character of nueva trova includes musical influences from the United States, England, and Brazil, but the music is much more a line of sophisticated political commentary.
