In the late s, I was invited by some friends who studied music to the Santiago de Cuba carnival. The trovador had been retired since , but we visited his home to try and converse with one of the shining lights of Cuban music. I remember we all started asking him questions, and I, as always, made a note of his statements, because I knew Matamoros was part of the history of Cuba. What was that birthday party like, when the trio was formed? Rafaelito Cueto brought a friend of his to my house, who worked as a blacksmith.

That was the very day that the three of us sang together for the first time! Did you ever imagine you would become a singer? I never imagined it, much less that we would be famous the world over, as they say. But destiny is destiny and what is set out for you in life will always be fulfilled. Do you remember your first visit to Havana?

In , the Capitolio was still not built, but the Paseo del Prado was there, Havana was already Havana, large as life. Ha ha ha. The sextets had already started out, but it was a few years later when they began to make their first recordings that they became known and popular. How much were you paid to play in Havana? The pay was 15 pesos per performance, five for each of us.

But with that money in those days, things could be done in Havana. Of course, I never got paid as much money as is earned now. There was a sort of mafia surrounding it all, what more can I say Did you have to work hard to reach the top? It was when our first record hit Santiago de Cuba, it was the greatest thing that could happen to a musician and singer. By then, they paid 60 pesos, a fortune back then, but we filled the theatres.

At the time, son was king, the septets — with trumpets — were thefrenzy of the moment and we were one of the emblems of Santiago de Cuba son. Besides, our songs had that eastern flavor. How many songs did you compose? Almost songs. Do you have any anecdotes about your trips to Europe? We performed in various cities in Spain, then performed for two months in Paris, at the Empire Theatre and the Embassy Cabaret, in the Casino de Paris.

Africans from Senegal visited us there and gave us gifts for performing that song, which made them recall their homeland. That was in , at the Saint Nicholas Hotel. It caught fire at dawn and each of us were in separate rooms, each rushed out in all directions. I was dead tired, when I woke up, the fire was already intense, I looked out the window, the firefighters placed a ladder and managed to get me out. They say you met Carlos Gardel at that time. That was in the Teatro Hispano in New York in Gardel saw us from a box and was impressed with the Cuban music.

The singer had magnetism, a lot of charm, as do the geniuses. Did the trio sing any songs by other authors? You formed various types of ensemble? We did it to fulfill contracts at parties and dances, we added trumpet. Tell us about Benny. He did everything right, he was the greatest of all of us. Are you proud to be a shining light of Cuba? Very proud, I retired, but my songs will always be in the mouths of many singers. I am the son of Santiago de Cuba.
