The text aims to raise questions about Nicolas Guillen's work from a social History perspective, mainly focusing on his early 30's production. By discussing his poetry and performances in Cuba from those years, the article tries to stimulate the reflection about the plots woven between interlocutors then and there. Guillen himself is one of those interlocutors, not only when he incorporates the popular voices that are expressed in his poetry by musical forms, but also when his work starts to assume a social-political bias in the cultural environment of that time.
