  • Leer versión en Español
  • Part of the richness of our culture is thanks to the talent and creativity of Honduran men and women who with much effort and not a few sacrifices compose beautiful and hopeful songs.

    Today new generations are struggling to open space in the national and international arena , young people who demonstrate the ability of Hondurans to create great works. We cannot also forget those who over time have managed to delight us with their compositions.

    Honduran Composers

    Although it is difficult to list all the composers, we want to name some of them:
