He added that the Cultural Festival aims to be at the level of what the city represents internationally, mainly in terms of culture, “we are putting together a public speaking contest, as well as music by composers who have participated in national and international high-quality events.”

Alexis Díaz said that there will be composers who have composed a song to San Cristóbal and there is also a proposal “from the great jazz pianist José Luis Mijangos, let’s see what possibility there is of integration because he has a proposal of original and high-quality music”.

“We want to see if the festival can start one or two days before the anniversary, which is the 31st, at the moment we have everything programmed virtually because conditions are still difficult, but that does not mean that we will not celebrate, commemorate, enjoy a day for San Cristóbal, capsules will be opened all day, there will be gastronomy, dance, music, a few days before we will announce the final program ”, Diaz concluded.
