¡Cuba Classics 3: Diablo Al Infierno!
Gloria Estefan has already played Havana. So have Latin stars Willy Chirino, Hansel (with and without Raul), Carlos Oliva and the entire suave Miami sound. Pablo Milanés has played Miami, as have Silvio Rodríguez, Los Van Van and Orquesta Revé. Vinyl, tape and CDs cross the sugar and Croqueta Curtains. They are light contraband, to be sure, not even illegal, just sospechoso (suspicious), like stolen kisses between cousins. Miami and Havana listen to each other’s recorded music, sometimes, no doubt, to hear messages banned or shunned on either side. But mostly just to hear Cuban music. To love it.
