Marta Sosa has been a global radio show announcer since 2009. As a child, Marta sensed her life had an extraordinary purpose and throughout her youth she could not decipher her spiritual restlessness; always thinking she had an important purpose in helping humanity.
Marta Sosa has led a life of humanitarian service in various fields. She has served as a teacher for new immigrants within the United States teaching English to adults from: Africa, Saudi Arabia and Latino’s of varied origins. Marta enjoyed teaching and also connecting with children dealing with the challenges of ADD deficiencies. Her patience, tenacity and love which she gave her students has helped them to trust their own abilities as independent individuals.
Upon the suggestion of a friend, Marta founded an Internet Radio Station in 2009 and immediately began to prepare for a new phase in her life. With the help of Facebook and other social networks Marta launched the inauguration of the now globally recognized Cubanarama Show. The name was suggested by her friend Entrepreneur and Internet Pioneer, Nick Matzorkis. The shows began in the summer of 2009 and when singer Nico Auriault in London heard of Marta’s show, Nico was the first to lend his songs Caffetero and Madagascar to be played in the program.
A few months after, Cubanarama interviewed the band Sugarcane Rush. In appreciation for the interview the band presented Marta with the theme song Cubanarama which is presently heard at the beginning of each show.
Today, Cubanarama is recognized worldwide and Marta has interviewed guests from numerous countries including: Santo Domingo, Chile, Spain, UK, Indonesia, Norway, Venezuela and all over the USA. The Cubanarama Show is hosted in English, Spanish and sometimes to satisfy our audience in both languages simultaneously.

My name is Marta. I was born in La Habana, Cuba where I lived for 10 year.
My reality is best described by writer & poet Tony Pichs poem, translated by my friend Monica D.Rosales, the Executive Director of DocMiami International Film Festival at the City of Doral, in Florida.
Seeking My Identity
I have lived within two realities: communism and liberty and have spoken two languages, due to which I awake poorly each morning in Cuba with my most sincere friends.
I live with two identities.
I am from here and I am from there.
My wings have taken me toward origins of two distinct roots.
I feel one hundred percent Cuban and Exiled as my truth.
Sometimes I feel as though I am not from here nor from there.
They have robbed me of my right of choosing from where to live, and so I choose to live in a fantasy, in a memory never destined to return.
I have passed down to my daughter our customs, so that I may not forget our beautiful Cuba which shall never be again.
Should I die, I should do so, happily in the knowing that we have both been navigated toward being Cuban; she by heredity and I by birth.
I miss the noise of people shouting, the Cuban palms, the beautiful beaches.
I appreciate Miami, Eighth Street; just the same, I struggle with my identity.
Time, is lost down the drain, I forget that my blood has flowed to the sea and my youth as been lost in the hopes of returning some day.
Had my grandmother still been living, she’d say that she couldn’t recognize me, nor understand me.
I feel like a hero that had to fight against the most difficult battle, the battle of leaving everything behind, leaving everything that is known – just to seek liberty.
Tony Pichs /Cuban Poet
