|Driven by a need to defend the cause of Cuba, Descemer and his fellow artists (outside and inside the island) decided to break the silence with ‘Patria y Vida’, a subject that has been raised around the world. Despite the fact that the renowned singer-songwriter has experienced mega global successes (‘Bailando’, ‘Súbeme la Radio’) the personal satisfaction of having been able to contribute to this last song with Gente de Zona, Yotuel, Maykel Osorbo and El Funky was especially rewarding.
“This topic has a powerful message and a purpose, a goal. With this song, a message is being carried and we have seen the people react. For me, this is invaluable and I will continue to the extent that my work can add to those of others who are also doing it and even risking their lives on the island. Freedom and Amen is born from this need to continue carrying the message against a system that has more than proven that it does not work, that encourages hunger and even worse the lack of the most important thing that a human being can have: freedom,” said the famous singer-songwriter. He added: “It is an honor for me that I have been called to participate in this song. I am grateful to Insurrecto and Baby Lores for having joined this initiative, and to great artists like Amaury Gutiérrez who has always been in the fight for the freedom of Cuba. Likewise, Trueno Aguilera (the only woman who participates in this issue), Uniko and Eddy K, Cuban talents who, beyond a doubt, beyond leaving their mark with this issue, contribute with their message towards the advancement of the change that we want to see in our country.”
