Hamlet Lima Quintana was born in Argentina in 1923. I met him for the first time in the mid 1960´s. He use to frequent our home, and my father recorded two of his books for the now extinct label Discos Qualiton. Hamlet and I kept in touch throughout the, and in 1994 we run into each other in Havana where we recorded this the reading of a poem he was working on at the time and a few images of Hamlet walking by the Malecón. Hamlet died in Buenos Aires in 2002.
