Cuando Fidel Castro prohibió la música de Celia Cruz en Cuba. 😶🙄🤐🇨🇺 “Señores presidentes por favor, en nombre de mis compatriotas, no ayuden más a Fidel Castro. Para que se vaya y me deje una Cuba libre del comunismo. Muchas gracias, muchas gracias…perdonen” Y Celia Cruz, ataviada con un vestido rojo con flecos largos y unos tacones dorados que la hacían ver más alta, porque grande ya era, pidió perdón porque ese once de diciembre de 1994, los organizadores de la Primera Cumbre de las Américas que se realizó en Miami, pidieron a los artistas que participaron en el evento de clausura “no expresar mensajes políticos”. A Celia no le importó. Para 1960, ya con Fidel Castro en el poder, Celia… More
′′ Gentlemen Presidents please, on behalf of my compatriots, don’t help Fidel Castro anymore To leave and leave me a Cuba free from communism. Thank you very much, thank you very much… sorry ′′ And Celia Cruz, attacked in a red dress with long fringe and golden heels that made her look higher, because she was big, asked for forgiveness because that December 1994, 1994, the organizers of the First Summit of the Americas It was held in Miami, they asked the artists who participated in the closing event ′′ do not express political messages “. Celia did not care. By 1960, already with Fidel Castro in power, Celia Cruz had been singing with Sonora Matancera for ten years, orchestra conducted by Rogelio Martinez, the best on the island. Sonora never missed contracts, fame, money. Until Fidel Castro arrived, who ordered to close all the bars on the island. ′′ Those who want to leave, let them go But that relaxation too, and all those gifts from America, none in this country! And on the path of the revolutionary offense not only, we want to express, private bars have been expropriated, but all state bars, all bars have been closed. That doesn’t mean that someone is prohibited from having a beer, no!, but buy it where it belongs and take it at home or wherever you want, because we don’t have to be promoting drunkenness; what needs to be promoted It’s the spirit of work! That is, state bars have been closed; that kind of ‘timbiricheo’ does not benefit anyone or interest our working people “, he said in one of his first speeches in power. ′′ It was time for the Revolution to end all that “. The order of the new head of state directly affected La Sonora Matancera and certainly Celia Cruz. That’s where the Queen of the Salsa’s hatred of Fidel Castro began. However, Colombian historian Eduardo Marceles, author of the ‘Unauthorized Biography of Celia Cruz’, recalls that the singer was not always anti-monster. In his book he claims he dedicated a song to Fidel Castro himself. ′′ In 1959 she recorded the song ‘Guajiro Arrived Tu D Díaa’, it has been said that she denied singing it, but she did and several times “, says Marceles. Choir: Agrarian reform is the scream. from all the people of Cuba. if we are all brothers. to cooperate with Fidel. In this respect, Omer Pardillo, who for many years was the representative of Celia Cruz, pointed out that ′′ at first all Cuba sang to Fidel Castro ′′ but that doesn’t mean ′′ she admired him or wanted him “. A flight of no return
Forced by the difficult situation in Cuba, Rogelio Martinez, director of Sonora Matancera, sought off-island contracts and got one in Mexico. Music groupings could leave the country only if they proved to have a return date contract. Celia, in the company of Sonora, leaves Cuba on July 15, 1960 as part of a musical tour. He never came back again. Just seven days after leaving Cuba, his father, Simon Cruz, who worked as a stoker on the railroads, died. Once the contract ended in Mexico, the Sonora Matancera travelled to the United States to present herself in New York, a trip that was not well seen by the Castro who began to see her as a traitorous ally of the empire. On April 1962, 1962, in New York City, and before a presentation in New York, he was told his mother had died of bladder cancer. Celia, in the company of Sonora, leaves Cuba on July 15, 1960 as part of a musical tour.
After her mother’s death, Celia Cruz solidified the visceral hatred of the Castro. The singer asked the Cuban government for permission to enter the island and attend her mother’s burial, the petition was not authorized. ′′ She died hating the Major of the Castro “, said Celia biographer Ana Cristina Reymundo. Once he left Cuba, and although it never became official, the Castroist government banned Cubans from listening to the music of La Guarachera. The artist born on October 21, 1925 was part of the proscribed artists. Only after his death was he authorized to listen to his music. The BBC reported that the controversial list of banned authors ′′ served its purpose. Their ending was described as part of the island’s opening to the world “. When Celia arrived in the U.S. for opportunities and sought asylum, her name went on the list of communist militancy suspects. ′′ She died hating the Major of the Castro “, said Celia biographer Ana Cristina Reymundo.
For more than ten years Cruz waged a battle with FBI Director John Edgar Hoover. To clear her name and be admitted to that country, she had to donate money to anti-communist organizations. Although officially received asylum in 1965, it was not until October 28, 1968 that an FBI statement acknowledged that Celia escaped the regime. One of those urban myths born with Celia’s trajectory artists says the FBI recruited her as a covert agent to monitor the movements of Cubans living in the United States. When Celia Cruz died in New York, she was literally buried with a handful of Cuban land. ′′ He was only once visiting Cuba with the emigration of the rafts, but on the American side, at Guant ánnamo military base. There was a fence that divides Cuba from the naval base. He went there, stood, put his hand underneath and collected Cuban land from there and buried with that one. He said, ‘I have a little piece of Cuba in me with this earth’ “.
