Strong defenders of the song and the most indigenous genres of Cuban music.
The Cuban singer Olga Lucía Lago Muela, Lucía Lago, passed away this Monday in Havana at the age of 95 , according to what was revealed by those close to the exceptional artist.
Lucía, a member of the Trío Hermanas Lago, had an intense musical activity since in 1947 she joined what was known as the first female harmonic trio of Cuba and America, in which she stood out with her sisters Cristina and Graciela.
Undertaking defenders of the song and the most indigenous genres of Cuban music, the Lago Sisters not only made a vast repertoire that was recorded in the Antillean discography, but also accompanied outstanding interpreters such as Bola de Nieve, Jorge Negrete, Alfredo Sadel and Rosita Fornés .
The most well-known theaters and cabarets, stellar programs on Cuban Television and daily broadcasts on CMQ and COCO stations, made Lucía and her sisters a benchmark of good taste, discipline and consecration.
Lucía Lago was recognized with distinctions by the National Culture, Raúl Gómez García, August 23, and Adolfo Guzmán; in addition to other awards delivered by radio and television.
Shortly before passing away, the last of the survivors of the formation was collaborating with the making of a documentary about the Lago Sisters that will see the light soon.
