The minstrel said that neither the death of Fidel Castro or the reestablishment of relations between Cuba and the united States will change the situation in the living of his countrymen.
“In Cuba it is very difficult to alter anything. The cuban people are a people numbed by a system stalled, which is unable to bring anything new”, said the musician.
“Take, for example, a person who was born in 1959, who already has 57 years and has not known another reality, more than that,” added Milanese.
The artist, who is one of the leading members of the movement of the New Trova in Cuba, also spoke about the position of their country in the international arena.
“The country is between two waters: on one side the Government of Cuba and the other Donald Trump. In the end the victim is the country itself, which is not able to define their own future.”
The composer of Yolanda also commented about the reggaeton, a musical genre that has a great popularity in his nation.
According to Milanés, the song was made as a reflection of society and is a means of information to gain sensitivity, that’s why bothers you that reggaeton has many followers.
“The rudeness, bad rhythm and bad music times out the true fate of the song because it is a form of desvirtuarla,” said the troubadour.
“That music has become a business seems to be something that there is no going back. And we don’t realize that business makes to impose things that do not have why to be necessarily good,” said the cuban.
