WITH A CUBAN SONG IN THE HEART

WITH A CUBAN SONG IN THE HEART features the

artwork from 280 album covers from Iván Acosta's
collection of over 5,000 long-playing discs—a collection
which hangs in the living room of his New York City home
and which includes the two albums that he and his sister
smuggled out of Cuba on that August 28th, 1961; and by
which he weaves a story of real life passages from his
childhood in Santiago de Cuba and "tidbits of history that
lay dormant in those album covers" local lore and landmark

events.

"Not a novel of politics, not a history of Cuban

music, not an autobiography, but an anecdotal and musical
journey of a soul," "a Cuban, an exile, a Cuban-American"
liberated by and with the music. A compilation released on
Un-Gyve Records, packaged as a CD or in an alternate vinyl
LP edition, and an exhibition of the album artwork will
coincide with the publication of WITH A CUBAN SONG IN
THE HEART which includes both the English and Spanish
versions of the text.
