Juanes and other international artists to play in Cuba on Sept. 20.

HAVANA TIMES, August 14 – The trip to Cuba and the concert for peace on September 20 is “a sign that it’s time to change mentalities,” affirmed Colombian singer Juanes in statements to the US Univision TV channel.

The artist has been strongly criticized by anti-Castro sectors of the Cuban exile community in the United States, who are against his project of performing in the island’s capital along with several other popular international artists, reported IPS.

The concert will take place in the Plaza of the Revolution and tens of thousands of Cubans can be expected to attend. Juanes was in Cuba recently to explore arrangements for the concert.

  • Thank you Juanes you are a lovely person, thanks for thinking in people in Cuba that cant go to any type of concert cause many reasons, two of them are money and they cannot go out of the country (liberty locked). Instead of miami cubans been so upset with the idea and the fact that are you going to sing in Havana, they should support you, not for them but for the people in cuba, there own people, the ones who need at least a little bit of distraction and happiness. (and that is what they need, at least for once). Cubans in Miami dont be so rude, mean and ungrateful, Juanes only want to make your people(family, frends) happy. SORRY BUT ALL OF YOU MIAMI CUBANS AND/OR WORLD CUBANS WHO ARE THINKING IN THIS TOTALIST WAY LOOKS LIKE YOU GUYS LEARN A LOT FROM FIDEL CASTRO AND HIS COMMUNIST REGIMEN. GOOD FOR YOU JUANES AND THE ONES WHOS GONNA GO WITH YOU TO THIS COMMUNITY SERVICE CONCERT “PEACE WITHOUT BORDERS.” (MAYBE THIS IS THE BEGINNING FOR THE REAL CHANGE)

  • Juanes, DONT FEAR, God is watching on you!!! Estas haciendo lo que tu corazon te dicta, hacer feliz a la gente, la musica es el lenguaje del corazon, tu estas entregando tu corazon a un pueblo que necesita una sonrisa. Tu eres el que continua la obra de JONH LENNON, IMAGINE, imagina solamente a Dios, a Jesucristo, dando felicidad, repartiendo sonrisas. La musica es el alimento del alma, igual que las religiones, TU SIMPLEMENTE ESTAS SIGUIENDO TU BLISS, LO QUE DICTA TU CORAZON, TE QUIEREN CRUCIFICAR. PERO ERES UN GRANDE. MIS RESPETOS Y ORACIONES POR TI Y TU FAMILIA, ANIMO Y ADELANTE.

  • I just have to say: Celia Cruz always wanted to go to sing to the Cuban people “the people” she always ask to go and just sing nothing else just to sing, make her people from cuba happy. My question is what happed if she was allowed to sing, only sing for the people, what would be the reaction from cubans from miami and around the world? What would happend if any famous cuban artist is allowed to go to cuba to make their people happy? Their go or just their pride dont let make a few hours their own people happy? PLEASE CUBANS USE COMMON SENSE DONT BE CLOSE MIND, YOU ARE ACTING THE SAME AS FIDEL, WANT NOT TO MAKE THE CUBAN PEOPLE HAPPY.
