The XIV edition of Partagás Friends Meeting, in Italy, will take place between the 3rd and the 6th of July, organized by the Cigar Club Matelica "Don Alejandro Robaina", from the city of Matelica in the province of Macerata, and Cuban singer Haila Mompié will offer a concert there.
For thirteen years, and with the collaboration of the Borgo Lanciano hotel and Cigar Club Association, this meeting is a reference for lovers, merchants, collectors and fans of Cuban tobacco in Italy and other countries, many of which meet in these occasions to enjoy the famous Habanos and other benefits of Cuban culture.
An extensive program of social and cultural activities announced the organizers of the traditional meeting, among which are the varied tastings; a peasant party and a street party in the Historic Center of Matelica; demonstrations of cigar rollers, parades of old American cars, concerts and the Cuban Fiesta La Gozadera, which will take place on the night of July 5 at Enrico Mattei Square, during which Haila María Mompié will perform.
Mompié is considered one of the most important Cuban singers; high level of improvisation and great vocal strength, characterize this artist who possesses an applauded voice capable of interpreting the different genres of the popular music of the Island, but very close to the son.
Since she began her solo career in 2000, she has achieved important successes with her albums, one of which, Mala, produced in 2011 by her husband Aned Mota, former singer of Charanga Habanera, was awarded at the 2012 Cubadisco Fair.
On Saturday 6 will close these days a gala dinner at the Lanciano Forum, organized by Diadema Spa and Habanos SA, in which the global presentation of the Supreme Monte Cristo 2019 will take place.
