On the 167th anniversary of his birth, Jose Marti was once again the reason for the reunion. From the headquarters of the National Union of Writers and Artists (UNEAC) in Villa Clara, several poets and friends remembered the most universal of the Cubans, an author who from the enigmatic lucidity of his texts has much to say to Cubans of today.

Ricardo Riveron, Aristides Vega Chapu, and Yamil Diaz shared through the verses, their very personal ways of finding Jose Marti with an audience of children, elders, youth, and adults.

Jose Marti is the true revelation of the mystery we are, which is why we wanted to exchange this afternoon, to reveal that mystery that we are to the world from the vision of Jose Marti, the one who has dreamed of the Cuba we are still building, said Sergio Garcia Zamora, host of the space that was called The yoke and the star.
