Cuban Artists, Singers, Poets Celebrate and Surround Guantanamo


‘Every August 4th, the neighborhoods around Guantanamo become “a space for music and poetry as an expression of rebellion and song for life.”

The 41st annual “Day of the Political Song” is bringing artists, poets, singers, and intellectuals together to perform art and celebrate in the area surrounding the Guantanamo Bay base, which is occupied by U.S. forces.

This year the celebrations are dedicated to commemorating the revolutionary life of Ernesto “Che” Guevara, as this year marks 50 years since he was captured and killed by the CIA in Bolivia, as well as marking 150 years since the birth of Sindo Garay, the Cuban Trova musician, and 30 years since the Union of Cuban Writers and Artists was launched in the province.’
