HAVANA, Cuba, Dec 23 (ACN) The 14th edition of the UNEAC "Argeliers León" Musicology Award was presented at the institution's headquarters as an incentive to students and a tribute to the work of renowned Cuban musicologists and professors.

Established in 1991, this biennial contest is celebrating its 30th anniversary together with the 60th anniversary of the Union of Cuban Writers and Artists (UNEAC) and the 50th anniversary of the Museum of Music.

The "Zoila Gomez" and "Danilo Orozco" awards, both for students, are part of the recognition.

On this occasion, the jury was made up of Doctors Cecilio Tieles Ferrer, Paula Sánchez and Master of Arts Alicia Valdés Cantero, who rigorously evaluated the works in competition.

The "Danilo Orozco" Prize was awarded to 4th year Musicology student Leyda de las Mercedes Bravo Benavides’s work Aproximación al consumo del Kpop por sectores de la juventud habanera (2018-2020) (An approach to the consumption of K-pop music by Cuban youth), whereas the "Zoila Gómez" Shared Award went to Vida y obra de Silvio Rodríguez: crítica a las fuentes consultadas (Life and work of Silvio Rodríguez: a critique of consulted sources) and La ópera en Cuba. Siglo XVIII-XIX (Opera in eighteen- and nineteen-century Cuba) by the students Frank Alberto Martínez Lazedio and Mariam Muñoz Soto, respectively.

Raiza Valdés Ortega’s Un acercamiento al estudio de la viola (An approach to viola studies) earned a special mention.

The UNEAC contest gives three main awards; on this occasion the third place was shared by Rafael Morán Bennasar’s El pensamiento musical en la obra de Chano Pozo and Nairín Rodríguez Duverger’s Contribución de Dinorah Valdés Pérez a la Cátedra de Musicología.
