ANOTHER VICTORY OF MUSIC
May 2018 will definitely go down in the history of the relations between Cuba and the United States as one in which the most vivid expression of the best wishes for peace and harmony of the peoples of two nations became tangible. As I have already written, prior to this publication, «beyond their political differences, they can move forward in the path of relationships, provided it is based on mutual respect».
Events such as the Artes de Cuba Festival: from the island to the world and the performances of Suicidal Tendencies in Holguin and Havana, featuring bands from our country, are signs that music is a homeland that belongs to all those who experience the need of feeling to be a part of it. It works as a privileged meeting point and convergence between human beings regardless of our political, ideological, cultural, economic, religious or racial differences, or the spot on the planet where we have decided to live. With crystal-clear clarity, Leonardo Acosta gives us the rationale: «because it is a vital part of our common legacy and our daily experience, because it is an ideal space for dialogue as it has been and is for the shared experience. And as dialogue seems almost impossible in other areas, in music it seems to have never ceased».
