The young daughter of Cuban dissident rapper Maykel “Osorbo” Castillo, who is currently a political of the communist Castro dictatorship, calls on Summit attendees to help free her father.

Via ADN Cuba (my translation):

On June 7, Jade de la Caridad, the daughter of Cuban rapper Mayel “Osorbo” Castillo, sent a message to the participants of the Summit of the Americas calling for her father’s freedom.

“Ladies and gentlemen of the Summit, although you don’t know me I send you a message from Cuba. My father is imprisoned only for singing a song. Can you help me free him?” the young girl asked in a video message posted on Facebook.

Her father, who is a Cuban dissident musician put on trial in May, is awaiting his sentencing hearing. Prosecutors are asking for a 10-year prison sentence.

Osorbo, who won two Grammy Latino Awards for the song “Patria y Vida,” was arrested on March 18, 2021 and kept incommunicado for two weeks. He is currently being held at the “Kilo 5 y Medio Prison” prison in the province of Pinar del Rio.
