ANOT­HER VICTORY OF MU­SIC

Arte por Excelencias - - ESTADOS UNIDOS -

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».
