GUANTANAMERA is the most known Cuban song in the planet. Guantanamera refers to the
women native from Guantбnamo, a municipality and city in southeast Cuba. The music
for the
song is sometimes attributed to Josй Fernбndez Diaz, known as Joseнto
Fernбndez, who claimed to have written it at various dates (consensus puts 1929 as
its year of origin), and
who used it regularly in one of his radio programs. Some who? Claim that the song's
structure actually came from Herminio "El Diablo" Garcнa Wilson, who could be credited
as a co-composer. Garcia’s heirs took the matter to court decades later but lost the 
case: the Supreme Court of Cuba credited Fernandez as the sole composer of the music in 1993.
Regardless of either claim, Fernandez can safely be claimed as being the first public
promoter of the song, through his radio programs.

“Yo soy un hombre sincero, de donde crece la palma

Yo soy un hombre sincero, de donde crece la palma

Y antes de morirme quiero echar mis versos de alma”

(This particular verse is from the book "Versos Sencillos" (Simple Verses) of the Great Cuban Poet José Martí 1853-1895, the "Apostle of Cuban Independence against the Spanish.)
