The popular Cuban comedian Carlos Ruiz de la Tejera describes as impressive his recent trip to Paraguay and Argentina with the show Songs of Love and Life.
Accompanied by his compatriot troubadour Jesus Del Valle (Tatica), De la Tejera acted at the Congress of Solidarity with Cuba held in Asuncion, the Paraguayan capital.
From there the two artists travelled to Argentina in Rosario, birthplace of the Argentine-Cuban guerrilla Ernesto Che Guevara where they performed to an audience eager and knowledgeable of their repertoire.
In the city of La Plata were honoured with the status of Guest of Honour and received many compliments from local press, which displayed in headlines the excellence in the program they have had for three decades.
We incorporate to our repertoire songs by Facundo Cabral, Alberto Cortez and Nacho Castaño and the poem People by the famous James Lima Quintana, he said.
To round off the South American tour, the Cuban artistic duo gave a concert in the amphitheatre Eva Perón, Buenos Aires, attended by leading intellectuals and artists.
It never failed to honour the five Cubans unfairly imprisoned in U.S. jails, including some poems of Antonio Guerrero.
According to Tejera Cuban culture triumphed once more, "for all that we have learned of this social process is called revolution" he concluded.
