Desiderio Alberto Arnaz y de Acha III (1917-1986), a Santiaguero doing his Cuban thing, educating American television viewers in the 1950’s.
No need for him to mention San Lázaro or his feast day . . . this was pure Afro-Cuban stuff, channeled by a white man, an ode to an African deity who was disguised as a Catholic saint.
Nowadays, Desi would be raked over the coals for committing the sin of “cultural appropriation.” Santa mierda de los perros de San Lázaro!
