I understand that an artist is not a political figure. I also admire good music it wont matter who plays it. But when the Play is over. They become regular parents, brothers and sister, etc. Why not Patriots too??? For many years some cubans have call themselves anti-politics. in most cases they were just protecting their return visits to the Island.
