MANIC STREET PREACHERS are to donate instruments to local musicians in CUBA.

Earlier this year, the Manics famously premiered material from their current album ‘Know Your Enemy’ at the Karl Marx Theatre in Havana, in front of President Fidel Castro (February 17).

As a result of the show, tomorrow evening (August 10), the Director of The British Council in Cuba, Michael White, will present three guitars – two Fender guitars and a bass to three Cuban musicians. The instruments have been donated by the band.

The three musicians, Dagoberto Pedraja, Ivan Farina and Javier Rodriguez are then expected to give a concert to those in attendance at the Patio de Maria venue in Havana.

Manic Street Preachers release a new single, ‘Let Robeson Sing’, on September 10.
