Very rare to see someone so “balls out” expressive in Cuba. Gorki Carrasco, a rocker in Cuba, got arrested in Cuba for “Social Dangerousness” — a term that The New York Times called “Orwellian”. Hah. Anyways, Gorki’s band is forbidden to play in Public because his lyrics protest the Government.
Also, notice Carlos “El Puro” (the pure one), a sweet grey-haired guy who works for the Madriguera — probably one of Cuba’s toughest jobs since its middle-man between the artists and the red tape institutions of the government. It’s exhausting just to see him struggle with the words as he tries to explain the “no-win” system.
