Accents, slangs and stupidity
The extreme control exerted from Cubans in Nort Cuba is REALLY getting to a point where you wonder what in hell their motives are.
Here we have a group of people (NOT ALL – I KNOW a LOT of Cubans in Miami DO have a head on their shoulders and it is actually attached to the rest of their bodies). Who do not , will NOT allow anything from Cuba to receive the credit it deserves.
And we are not talking about some miracle vaccine those motherfuckers swear thay have invented. We are talking about Cubans who have chosen to live in CUBA, confront the KaSStrist regime in its own lair and refuse to leave. Why ? simple .. let KaSStro leave , this is MY COUNTRY.
God , if we all had had those gonads ther would be no KaSStro.
But from this side of the pond we have the lizard brains who can not accept that anyone can critizice the communist regime and get away with it.
So for those idiots a little lesson in CREATIVE LIFE IN KUBA
When you hear a musician , a painter a poet in fact anything new and fresh, it is new to YOU.
These Heros (cause I have no other word to describe them) have suffered what you can not imagine and we can actually feel because we were victims of the same treatment.
When you hear Porno para Ricardo, Carlos Varela, Punto y Coma perform , prior to that performance have been uncountable incarcerations, threats, phone tapings , survellaince etc.
None of these people woke up one day and said .”Oh I will climb on a stage , make my feelings known and the government will respect my fundamental human right of free speech” , IT DOES NOT HAPPEN THAT WAY , Perucho!
Behind that concert lies a capitulation on the part of the government a taciturn understanding that things will not go past a certain line.
You hear time and time again “If they are speaking against KaSStro WITHIN Kuba they are ñangaras, with an agenda” YOU STUPID AND UNINFORMED TWIT”
These people have gathered an underground following that WILL revolt if these artists suddenly disappear from the scene.
The part that YOU , Mr or Mrs. “I would not go to CUBA until I can land and go directly to EL ENCANTO and get some alligator shoes” miss is that the absolute power of the Cuban government can NOT be unleashed on a singer with a song to sing.
It is the same reason the USA does not nuke the middle east to kindom come & gone. Who needs the aggravation of dealing with world wide protests.
Just as you would not flip a stake with a bulldozer, the government HAS to withstand this dissent delivered in the form of art. The best strategy here is to look the other way.
When I saw Punto y Coma live , I was sure la Fiana would be coming in any moment and I stood up and asked their answer was poignant and funny . “Why do you think we have the stage facing the main door? Later I learned they all have suffered some kind of ACTO DE REPUDIO but they kept at it. Porno para Ricardo is another example. Although at the very beginning of their “discovery” by Cuban/Americans through Killcastro, the emails were fast and furious “This guy is a ñangara , that’s why he can speak like that, he is a mole he is shit , he gotta be … AH .. FUCK YOU , you paranoid freak.
What the hell do YOU know about Cuba? Ever ate an ice cream at COPELIA ? NO? Then SHUT THE FUCK UP!
When the premier voice of descent in Cuba Carlos Varela was booked to play some venue in Miami , the concert was boycotted . “God, nothing goes past these guardians of freedom and justice.. Does it?”
They had not listen to Carlos, they did not know what his story was, they did not know that this man’s talent is such that members of the communist party had to convice KaSStro to leave him the fuck alone, because he was a nuke bomb who fortunately had not opted to set himself off.
And THAT is life in Cuba, How do you think we got to this point? , where the government is crumbling like a sand castle in a Caribbean storm. It has been inch by inch, and every inch has been fought to the death.
Now, I hear the most unfounded fabrications against Carlos Varela.
He is NOT Cuban, he doesn’t sound Cuban , he doesn’t speak for Cubans in the island. It is a ruse.
Oh man, this is one reason I don’t own a gun.
You could be from Miramar, el Vedado, Marianao and we ALL have a slight but different accent.
If you are from las quimbambas , then sure he doesn’t sound ANYTHING like you.
So here are some facts: Carlitos (as he is known) is not only Cuban , he has chosen to live in relative humility even though his records sell in Latin America at a rate close to Shakira , and HIS are the only ANTICOMMUNIST words the youth of Latin America hears!.
Unlike Jorge Perugorría who has demanded a life of luxury only a few miles from KaSStros REAL PUNTO CERO , Carlitos still wonders around 5th ave and El Rio Almendares, stopping to play in La Puntilla o la Chorerra. His reason detra is to perform, the riches means nothing.
Now, if you are from the Vedado, Marianao, Miramar area all you need to do is play Carlos CD and listen to him speak.
There is a tiny little intro in which he stops the music and says in typical cheeky Habanero “ me ‘quivoque” and then an endearing giggle before the next count down.
That is ONE 100% HABANERO and if you want to discredit the man come up with more robust reasons , cause this just stamps your forehead with the seal of the intran sASSholic twat.
