In his musical life the Cuban Carlos Puebla went all the way from a self-taught lyrical guitarist to a singer and composer known throughout the whole world, the self-proclaimed "Singer of the Revolution". Carlos’s starting point for becoming a musician with a big name was a revolution, which was taking place in Cuba in 1959. Being an ardent supporter of Fidel Castro’s new regime, Carlos Puebla wrote some songs expressing his trust and respect for the value of the revolution. The musician’s most famous work came to be the song "Hasta siempre, Comandante" ("Goodbye, Commander"), which was a response to Che Guevara’s departure from Cuba. The song has been translated into many different languages and has more than two hundred cover versions, which are used by musicians all over the world.
