• TOP 5 » Best Volleyball Players, Expelled from the Cuba

    The history of cuban volleyball is not only the history of victories and defeats, but also numerous escapes of volleyball players from the island. The history of the cuban volleyball would be incomplete without stories of the escapes from the island. This situation can be treated differently, but, probably, if Cuba gather current national team of those who left in the last few years, it would have been invincible. But the history, as known, can not be changed with the time.

  • Chapotín: Cuba's greatest Trumpet Player?

    Elpidio Chapotín Delgado is reputed to be one of the great Cuban trumpet players of all time. At the age of 62, he is still determined to take full advantage of life. He lives in a cozy apartment in Havana with his wife Gloria who has prepared a huge snack for us. It is as if we were an infantry battalion instead of merely four people. Chapotín loves to talk. There is practically no need to ask him any questions because he steadily weaves memories, views, and anecdotes together. He moves easily from one musical period of his life to another. "One thing I can say is that I am lucky to have been practically the only musician who played with Gonzalo Roig* and who is still active as a performer today," he says before he quickly realizes that perhaps that was too absolute. He recalls the be...

  • Defecting From Cuba To Play Baseball In The US: Then Versus Now - Newsy

    Transcript: Some left everything they knew and loved, risking it all, including their lives, just for the chance to play baseball in the U.S. Now, the next generation of Cuban baseball players hoping to make it in the big leagues will have a much safer route there. As of mid-March, Cuban citizens can now work and earn salaries from U.S. companies. That means Cuban baseball players can negotiate and sign with MLB teams directly. Before, players would need to defect to another country, establish residency, and then try to secure a major league deal. And that was no safe journey. In the case of Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig, his defection story involves days-long journeys, sleepless nights, smugglers, death threats and more. And Puig's story isn't that different from others w...

"I learned from everybody: Formell, Chucho, Adolfo Guzmán, Rafael Somavilla, Tony Taño, Manuel Duchesne, Michel Legrand..." he continues as he recites the many outstanding Cuban directors and composers.

Imagining Cuba apart from the history of its own music is impossible. In our nation, the origin and development of music has been, at all times, in intimate contact with the life of its people. Of all the music that comes out of the Cuban people, Son reigns supreme. And within Son and in the musical culture of Cuba as a whole, the Tres holds a position of great importance. Read complete article here: http://www.cubaabsolutely.com/Culture/article_music_traditional.php?id=Pancho-Amat The Cuban Tres is a guitar-like instrument with three courses (groups) of two strings each for a total of six strings. It most probably was born in the area of the Sierra Maestra Mountains, in the eastern part of Cuba, around the mid to late 18th Century, and had its ancestry in the Spanish Guitar. It is sometimes referred to as "Cuban Tres Guitar," "Tres Cubano" or "Tres Guitar." Some might think that the tres is just another guitar, but the major difference between the two is in playing the instrument. Unlike the guitar, in the tres, chords are seldom strummed. Several famous musicians have preferred the tres for their music, notably, Nené Manfugás, Faustino Oramas, Alfredo Boloña, Arsenio Rodríguez and Compay Segundo. In recent decades, one "tresero," or "tresista" as he prefers to be called, has placed his very singular imprint on his interpretation of the tres, that is, Francisco Leonel Amat Rodríguez, better known as Pancho Amat or "El Tresero Mayor de Cuba" [The Top Cuban Tresero].

Transcript: Some left everything they knew and loved, risking it all, including their lives, just for the chance to play baseball in the U.S. Now, the next generation of Cuban baseball players hoping to make it in the big leagues will have a much safer route there. As of mid-March, Cuban citizens can now work and earn salaries from U.S. companies. That means Cuban baseball players can negotiate and sign with MLB teams directly.

In the case of Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig, his defection story involves days-long journeys, sleepless nights, smugglers, death threats and more. And Puig's story isn't that different from others who've defected. This change of stance by the U.S. government, though, means Cubans can hopefully avoid those dangerous journeys. While the United States and Cuba continue to thaw diplomatic relations, Major League Baseball is doing some thawing of relations of its own. In December, MLB held a camp for kids in Havana featuring several Cuban players some of who'd defected just years prior. The players, who had to be approved by the Cuban government, weren't allowed to return to their Cuban homes and were only able to see family members at approved hotels. On Tuesday, the Tampa Bay Rays will continue MLB's mission to play goodwill ambassador by playing a game against the Cuban national team. President Obama is expected to be in attendance. Roughly 70 players have defected from Cuba and gone on to appear in an MLB game.

(7 May 2016) FOR CLEAN VERSION SEE STORY NUMBER: 4034536 LEAD IN: Thawing relations between the United States and Cuba is opening up opportunities for Cuban baseball players to play in the U.S. Major League as well as their home games. In the past, many Cuban players have defected to join American teams, leaving the national sport in crisis. STORY-LINE : Cubans and Americans share a love of baseball. But the Cuban game is enduring the deepest moment of crisis in more than 50 years for the island's famed state-run baseball league. A flood of high-profile defections to the U.S. has gutted the country's teams. Stadiums and fields are run down, and experts and fans say the quality of play is also being affected. The national team hasn't won a major international tournament in nearly a decade. Ismael Sene, a Cuban baseball historian says despite a dip in popularity, baseball remains a popular topic for many. "We have been losing fans, but we have to wait to recover the fans because when you reach to the finals, the people go to the games and the people talk about baseball in the streets even if the baseball is not the highest quality it used to be," he says. Irvin Negrin Munoz, a member of the "MLB Pena" fan club devoted to the St. Louis Cardinals catcher Brayan Pena, agrees that Cuban baseball is not what should be. "Truthfully for those who know and like baseball, they will know that baseball is at a critical moment. The level of the players, from the highest level which is the National Series, there are too many technical imperfections," he says. Now authorities are considering once-unimaginable changes to save the socialist country's national game - reforms partly prompted by Obama's detente. Major League Baseball is in talks with both nations' governments on a potential deal that could make it easier for Cuban ballplayers to play in the United States without having to sneak away at international tournaments or risk high-seas defections with human smugglers. In February the Obama administration implemented a policy to let Cubans earn salaries in the U.S. as long as they don't pay special taxes back home. Those regulations specifically mention athletes, along with artists and performers. Baseball fan Negrin Munoz, enjoys watching Cuban exiles play in North American teams. "The true fans of baseball want to see a quality team, and moreover the Cubans who are playing there....I am a baseball fan, and I am a fan of the Met's (New York Mets), and I like them for the history. Now I like them even more because Yoenis Cespedes (Cuban player) is on the team there. It's something I follow," he says. Meanwhile many Cuban children are taking up soccer instead of baseball, and idolizing stars like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. While a single ball is all it takes for 22 kids to play soccer, gloves, bats and other baseball equipment are expensive and scarce. These children playing a junior game in Havana retain an enthusiasm for the sport. Ten-Year-Old, Roland Cue Garcia, says baseball gives him confidence: "I like to play baseball because when I play I feel happy....and when the spectators applaud, I get excited, and I like to play outfield, second base, anywhere they want me to play." Joan Hidalgo Valdes, who is also ten-years-old, says that he aspires to become a great player one day: ''When I grow up, I could be a great player, playing in mayor leagues and playing good technical games.'' President Barack Obama joined Cuban President Raul Castro to watch the Tampa Bay Rays play Cuba's national team at an exhibition baseball game during his historic trip to Havana in March.

It is sports which has gotten there first, with the U.S. National Basketball Association sending goodwill ambassadors to help train the Cubans.
