Aside from letting my brain drown in the lyrics of the music and my blood be saturated in its rhythm, I was thinking of the what with my Afro Cuban woman. What was it about my Cubanita that I wanted my audience to capture. I listened to her and let her speak. Then I knew.
I wanted people to know she is happy. She feels the soft moist dirt beneath her feet. This is home. It is Cuba, her only home. She loves her modest life such as the tobacco field she tends and the hot sun that fills her with energy and warmth. She has a strong appreciation for the mountain range behind her that she used to explore as a child and now admires for its beauty.
However, in her heart, she also holds a deep sadness. It is a dark place in her heart filled with disappoint and regret. To the world, she is content and full of life, but her heart bleeds. Her native Cuba is under an oppressive government that dictates and refines it's people to mere breathing and existence. The Cuban people have lost their freedom, their basic human rights. In a country filled with so much culture and life, what is left is a small beaming hope of a better future. Listen to her story but be assured it is shared by countless others.
