Cuba’s freedom song: CATO interviews Cuban dissident rapper El Funky

Via the CATO Institute:

“Patria y Vida” has been nominated for best song of the year and best urban song for this year’s Latin Grammys, which will be held on November 18. On November 3, one of the coauthors and performers of the song, the rapper known as “El Funky,” visited Cato after having managed to leave Cuba days earlier. We spoke with him about the song, about the current situation in Cuba, and about those imprisoned by the regime, including Maykel Castillo, one of the other author??performers.
