Cuban composer and pianist (1896-1963); Malagueña means Woman from Malaga. Is there a Malaga in Cuba? No, it's about the Spanish city. Lecuona's Malagueña is part of his piano suite Andalucia, Suite Española. Lecuona left Cuba when Castro took over and died on the Spanish island of Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
