Ana Belen Backs Juanes Cuba Concert

HAVANA TIMES, August 17 – Spanish signers Ana Belen and Victor Manuel expressed their support for the Juanes Peace Concert to be held in Havana on September 20, reported IPS.  Belen criticized the “anti-Castro exiles of Miami” that have strongly protested the musician’s project to perform in the Cuban capital.

Juanes has called for new mentalities and a change in the time-worn policy of isolation towards Cuba.  He will perform in Havana with other yet to be announced international musicians as well as Cubans including popular folk singer Silvio Rodriguez.

    Debe haber chispas de intentos de cambios para que cosas pasen. Viviendo como siempre, haciendo lo mismo de siempre y esperando que pase algo, nunca pasara nada. <>

    Solo le digo a Juanes y a todos los que creen hipocritamente que eso ayudara al sufrido pueblo, dedico una frase de Jose Marti el heroe nacional de Cuba y el mas grande de todos los cubanos, que lucho contra los opresores de su pueblo no contra el
    “Ver cometer un crimen en silencio es cometerlo”
    Asi que cada vez que en cuba se reprima, encarcele, se le quite la vida o sencillamente se le quite los derechos mas elementales, el sera complice de eso. Y para los que respondan que es para el pueblo su musica, permitanme explicarles que en cuba no se mueve nada sin la aprovacion del regimen,

    Entiendo a todos mis compatriotas cubanos. Y el deseo de ver cambios drasticos en nuestra querida Isla de Cuba, “La Perla del Caribe. Pero recuerden para que hallan cambios debe haber destellos de deseos para esos cambios. Creo que despues de 50 anos de “Same all, same all” de lo mismo de siempre. Es necesario cambiar las herramientas agotadas y gastadas por los anos. Ya se DEBE CAMBIAR el compas para tocar la guitarra. Se debe iniciar un nuevo juego de pelota con nuevos equipos! Entienden.

    Quizas el hecho que sea un extranjero y no un cubano el que inicie este concierto exalta la frustacion y mal sabor en algunos grupos de cubanos en el exterior. Lo se, porque soy cubanito igual. Pero el hecho de que independientemente de las politicas y politicos a traves de la historia. ES BUENO, que nuestro pueblo cubano EN CUBA. El cual carece de buenos momentos de conciertos con cantantes de la talla de JUANES. Tengan ese solaz y tiempo refrescante de un concierto asi. VIVA JUANES!!!!!

    I truly admire what Juanes is plannning to do in Cuba. Trying to bring a smile to so many people that need it is just priceless. This concert goes beyond any politics this is about the people. Music brings us together. JUANES keep doing what you do, there are thousands of us that follow you because you are different not only do we enjoy your music but the lyrics is what makes the DIFFERENCE. THANK YOU SO MUCH for leaving an example to the rest of us and also thank you to all of those artists that are willing to go and join Juanes in such wonderful cause.

    If I were a Cuban singer or just a Cuban who wants his compatriots not only would support Juanes but I also would make the impossible to be there too, with my music rather than doing silly criticism because somebody is doing something that nobody has bold and for our people in the island to enjoy.
    Let’s help Juanes to success in this project, our brothers in Cuba deserve it.

    Si yo fuese un cantante Cubano o solamente un Cubano que quiere a sus compatriotas no solo apoyaria a Juanes si no que haria hasta lo imposible por estar alli tambien, con mi musica en vez estar haciendo criticas tontas porque alguien esta haciendo algo que nadie se ha atrevido y en favor a nuestra gente.

    Isolation had not, have not and will not work. It is time to change course of action and amke sure that the Cuban people are included in the international community.
    Let’s them choose what they want for their country, it is time to end the blockade, but keep and eye on what they are doing and planning. We may learn something from each others. Let them get the freedom that they deserve.
