Patria y Vida: Cuba’s struggle with dissidents with rap
A rap and reggaeton performed by a group of well-known Cuban musicians has deeply angered the communist government.
The song, which has been viewed more than four million times on YouTube, explodes the island’s dire economic situation.
The title ‘Patria y Vida’ or ‘Patria and Life’ plays on one of Fidel Castro’s favorite revolutionary slogans ‘Patria or Death’.
Havana has described the artist as a mercenary and released his pro-revolutionary song in response, albeit with little success.
Produced by Will Grant, Colm O’Molloy and Greg Brosnan.
