That's an ignorant assumption that just doesn't hold water. And so what if it's true. Castro is not the total demon you might think he is but then it appears you don;t do much thinking

I don't disagree but only a little bit about your assessment of Fidel but all men are not totally good or bad. Even Hitler and Mussolini did good things for their nations. Remember, Castro dumped Batista and ended the domination of Cuba by the mob. He will be known to have done a few other good things for the Island nation. My point is I don;t believe he has anything at all to do with the music world, nothing. Those musicians stand apart from the political world. Even more they provide a link with elements of the Cuban culture which are outside and beyond politics much as great masters like Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, Beethoven and Brahms stand apart from the Hitlers and Tsars. Truly where would we be with out the great creative genius of such examples of Russian and German culture. In the end, if this world is to reach a point of harmony, music will play a major role, is playing a major role as many of us have learned to appreciate the music of many cultures.
Just suggesting you not lump the Cuban people with Castro and more than we now lump the Japanese with Tojo, the Russians with Khrushchev, the Italians with Mussolini, the Chinese with Mao, the Germans with Hitler. Please try to separate politics from the people. Most of us simply want to live in peace and harmony and are kept from doing so by the politicians of this world who thrive on conflict
Nothing against the poor Cuban people who live in the island prison under the dictatorship

I must repeat,

The demons are as saints compared to castrohitler, seņor!

My Church group visited Cuba and we found the people very healthy , happy with their health care and a functioning government which can not be said about USA.

Many were starting small businesses with government aid, again not something you see in USA .
