Cuban Official Extols Late Dancer Gades
Gades is a very important example of a highly cultured man, who was not dazzled by market, with an exceptional consistency between his rigour as an artist and his ethical sense, said Prieto.

Prieto is expected to attend a posthumous tribute to the famous Spanish choreographer and dancer on Saturday, sponsored by the Communist Party of the Peoples of Spain (PCPE), Gades's party.

In a press conference at the headquarters of the Association of Foreign Correspondents, the Cuban official noted the timely nature of this tribute at a time of ethical crisis worldwide.

He also referred to the Spanish dancer's friendship with leader of the Cuban Revolution Fidel Castro and current President Raul Castro, the Prima Ballerina Assoluta Alicia Alonso and other notables from the Island.

Abel Prieto also highlighted the importance of the late Spanish artist for the Cuban people and his decision to have his remains placed in Cuba's eastern mountains, along with those of figures including Vilma Espin.

Gades is also an asset shared by Cuban artists and people and by communists and revolutionaries worldwide, by those who do not accept this unfair system that is leading humankind to annihilation, he concluded.
