Quote of the Day: Cuban Rapper on Raul's "Reforms"

Tuesday, July 29, 2014
I don't think there's been any [opening] as there are tons of artists who are censured in Cuba. If there had been change, everyone would be able to work and everyone would be able to have their own space to give concerts. "Non-professional" artists, who are still artists, can't work in state establishments. It's always a problem because you don't have a work permit. When they have no other excuse to give you, they tell you that you're not a professional and that you can't work. So what opening has there been? Everything is the same.
