Tribute to Manzanero Washington DC

At the Mexican Cultural Institute, whose building has belonged to Mexico for more than a century, Vila Dosal and Moctezuma Barragán unveiled the plaque that names “Armando Manzanero” to the Music Hall of this place and that from 1921 until the end of the 1990s In the 80s it functioned as the diplomatic headquarters of our country.

The plaque reads, both in Spanish and English: “In homage to the master of melody, eternal symbol of Mexican music. His legacy will live on in every note.”

When addressing a message, Vila Dosal recalled the human quality of Armando Manzanero and pointed out that when he started as mayor of Mérida, in 2015, the composer approached him to tell him that he was the greatest promoter and the proudest Yucatecan that existed in the world and that he would be willing to do anything he needed to promote Yucatán, a situation that was repeated when he came to the State Government.

In turn, Moctezuma Barragán highlighted that Manzanero is, without a doubt, a character that we carry in our hearts, since we have been moved by listening to him and knowing his lyrics; Musical celebrities such as Elvis Presley and Tony Bennett sang and translated his songs into English, so naming the Music Hall in his honor marks an important moment in the institute’s existence.

During the event, the Governor gave the Mexican diplomat a copy of the book Armando Manzanero, authored by the Yucatecan writer Enrique Martín Briceño, which became part of the bibliographic collection of said institute, under the direction of Ix-nic Iruegas Peón.
