La música y el son cubano

por Samuel Righi

Me interesa la música caribeña. Expresa la tristeza de la vida con una determinación tácita de nunca permitirla capturarnos. Esa música abraza a la vida sensual—a las emociones más esenciales y más sinceras de los seres humanos. Abraza la ambigüedad. Me encanta la fuerza con que tratan con lo malo de la sociedad en <<Chan Chan>>, un cuento de amor. No hay análisis meticuloso; expresa directamente la realidad clara de vivir en una cultura racista. La canción está llena de pasión, de lo gris de la vida—no finge darnos una imagen sanitaria o definida. Es una bocanada de aire fresco para el estudiante de la universidad estadounidense.

Escucho a Bocelli y a unos artistas latinoamericanas del hip-hop. He oído Buena Vista Social Club aunque nunca me había tocado como ahora. No he oído casi nada del son cubano fuera de la corriente principal. Intento explorar esa música. Me inspira confiar en la vida tanto que no dependo en las palabras para justificarme o asegurarme. Las ideas se rinden al sentido elemental.

Como todo de la historia colonial, el son es una combinación de los mundos que se mezclaron en el Caribe en los quinientos años pasados. Encarnado en la fusión de los sonidos elementales de sus tres culturas distintas están los sueños de la gente que se encontraron en Cuba. Está el sufrimiento del colonialismo. Están el tabaco y el azúcar. Están el racismo, el amor, la desesperanza y la risotada. El mar está. La isla está. El ritmo africano se combina fluidamente con las cuerdas suaves de la guitarra española.  Los dos se juntan con los sonidos antiguos que han sido parte de la tierra caribeña por miles de años. Es increíble que nunca en la historia humana hemos creado algo tan único—una música tan fluida que consiste en partes tan distintas, extrañas una de las otras.   Esa música atesta a la creatividad de sus artistas. Es una expresión viva de la humanidad—la bandera primaria de una gente que ha sufrido el terror del colonialismo. Lo sobrevivieron. Han creado una música que expresa la humanidad profunda. Esa música conoce a lo menor y a lo mejor de ser humano. Esa música provoca al cuerpo bailar.

  1. Yes, it is interesting. In perilous times, unlikely, unknown people of courage do seem to emerge sometimes. For example, in 1855 who would have thought that an obscure country lawyer from Illinois would emerge and lead America through the tumultuous Civil War? And not only that, but Abraham Lincoln became an almost Christ-like figure who sacrificed his very life for the country he loved.

  2. I don't have an Ipod touch but a cool app would be a photo frame arranger, plug in the dimensions of the different frames and it would spit out different layouts for your wall.

  3. Liebe Cornelia, herzlichen Dank für die prägnante Zusammenfassung und visualisierte Darstellung des Notfiks. Einzig der Ausdruck Notfik finde ich unschön. Das haben die Notfiks dieser Welt nicht verdient, obwohl Notfik phonetisch sehr spannend ist. Also bleiben wir dabei.Ja, die Notfiks gibt es. Und die braucht es. Und sie haben mehr Ehen gerettet als kaputt gemacht. Geniess es, bleib cool… Niki, 74

  4. Good point. I hadn’t thought about it quite that way. 🙂

  5. Dann melde ich mich als stiller Leser auch mal zu Wort. Liee Joanna, ich hab deinen Blog noch nicht lange in meinem Reeder, aber ich hebe mir die Beiträge immer bis zum Schluß auf, da sie immer so toll und inspirierend sind! Ich habe schon einiges nachgebasteltet und gebacken :)Am allertollsten finde ich das große Haus-Windlicht, was auf der Gingar-Seite ja derzeit leider ausverkauft ist 🙁 Liebe GrüßeIvonne aus B

  6. Ich weiß das zufällig, weil ich meine Pro-Objektive auch oft an meine E-P1 hänge. Die Ergebnisse an der kleinen sind oft besser, als die meiner E-3. Ich gehe davon aus, dass die E-5 diesen Unterschied wieder umkehrt, also eine bessere Figur machen wird, als die kleine PEN. Dennoch hält sich meine Begeisterung über die E-5 etwas in Grenzen. Aber ich möchte erstmal Bilder aus der Kamera sehen, bevor ich mich endgültig festlege.

  8. / RamonProcure saber um pouquinho mais sobre canto, as extensões vocais na verdade são semelhantes, uma boa mezzo deve atingir notas agudas muito bem (fora os extremos). O que muda é onde a voz brilha mais e a facilidade que a pessoa tem para alcançar tais notas.E outra coisa, não é a extensão vocal que faz uma vocalista melhor ou pior, só atingindo notas agudas que vc faz boa música? Pense bem…

  9. Welcome back The hardwood floors look awesome! All the talk about your math filled life is making me cringe… I cannot stand math. Period. I really wish I were good at it, but I’m horrible It’s just not my forte, haha! Congrats on getting over that $2 million mark, I really didn’t know that was possible in this economy!

  10. The larger issue is that many of these pets are intelligent beings. Proty is, for example, and Krypto’s elaborate interior monologues, and understanding of Morse code, and all suggest that he is as well. And what about Supergirl’s horse? Isn’t he actually a person?

  12. Thanks for investing in my novels, Maddy. Just thinking the words “North Dakota” makes me reach for a jacket. I really like the cover art of Nightbred, too — I was hoping for a good match to how I envision Jamys, and I think they came pretty close.

  14. The banks called in all the agricultural mortgages, and in most cases foreclosed on the farms putting thousands out of work. Some would rightly call it a jewish conspiracy, as it placed all monetary policy in their institutions. Was this answer helpful?

  15. 5才と1才の子供がいます。私もフルタイムで働いていますが、夫は家事も育児もしません。もちろん、食事なんか作った事もありません。オシッコのオムツ替えも無理です。正直、夫=大きい長男です。でも、夫に言わすと「やっている」との事。お互いの認識が違うだけで、実際、そうなんだと思います。上の子が5才になり話も通じるようになって、一人で遊んだりもできるので、上の子と夫2人での留守番、お出かけは可能になりましたが、1才の子と夫では留守番は30分が限界です。外出なんてもってのほか。ただ、これは私の責任もあるんだと思います。私が、夫の育児に口を挟みすぎたんだと思います。多少、危なっかしくても、下手でも、ギリギリまで夫がするのを見守るべきだったのかな・・・。と。最近は、期待すると腹が立つので、期待しない事にしました。もちろん、本人には言いませんよ!余計、やらなくなるだろうから。今は、たまーに何かしてくれたら、すごく褒めるというか、喜ぶ振りをします。・・・本当に、大きい長男。口は達者だし、ズウタイはでかいし、一番やっかいな我が家の息子です・・・。

  19. Mas conhecem o Mullah. Não parece, neste cenário, tentador o 3º mandato ?E, com a ó-posição que temos, basta Mullah fazer como seu alter-ego venezuelano, permitir a reeleição contínua para governadores, que já terá o apoio do carreirista das alteirosas.

  21. Maybe you have it backwards. After all, Gorbachev supervised the end of a financially and spirtually bankrupt leftist regime. They had no money, and were forced to confront the complete failure of their left-wing ideology. The same thing is happening here: we're heading toward bankruptcy and the Left has no idea what to do about it.

  22. It makes me crazy when my house is dirty too! I am high stress, OCD, and somewhat of a clean freak. It is a blessing and curse. Hiring a cleaning lady sounds like a great plan for you. I might just be joining you! =)

  27. Primim intotdeauna ceea ce ne dorim, trebuie doar sa ne dorim. O prietenie adevarata are nevoie de timp, de spatiu si……. de noi. Si altceva, un prieten adevarat nu asteapta recompense, deci nu te stradui prea tare cu rasplata, toate la timpul lor.Imi place cum scrii, dar as fi vrut sa stiu ce anume te-a facut sa vezi valoarea dintr-un om?

  28. I cant believe I did not write this first.When I went on my smoke break I went to the elevator where we have there 2 indoor plants near the window. I place my hand on one of the leaves and got what was very similar to a static shock but not as strong. I then placed my both arms on the 2 plants at one time and again felt the electricity. Totoally awesome expeience and I could feel the consciousness of those plants. Soon, I will be able to see into the fairy world.

  30. Admiring the time and effort you put into your site and in depth information you offer. It’s great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same out of date rehashed material. Excellent read! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  32. I picked French too. Wouldn't it be awesome to do mission work in a French speaking country? Maybe in Africa? That's totally my dream!I think I'm going to buy a few books in French and try and read them (with a handy translator dictionary close by!).

  34. Success to me is not money, Status, Health, Family, Friends, or a Big House. Most of these are just needs, wants, and position. Success is accomplishing a task or goal that is of great achievement. Not only in the eyes of others, but also yourself. Such as being a good father or mother…having a stable family…putting up a new fence…having a steady job…keeping organized…fixing a car…putting up a shelf…….anything that accomplishes something. Success is simply trying and succeeding. So if you’re not a quitter, try your best, and are accomplish goals, you are successful.

  35. American tinned beans are absolutely bowfin! When the kids were little we made the mistake of trying them – oh jeez louise they are truly awful, even the “vegeterian” ones (minus the lumps of fatty pork) bleugh!).I was explaining to my daughter that there are undoubtedly things that British food producers do better (she was hankering for Publix), and we came up with a few… diluting fruit drinks was the first we thought of, then bread, then cheese, then we decided we quite like it here after all

  36. Nie jest. SÅ‚abiej wypada tylko “Are You There, Chelsea?”. Poza tym oba byÅ‚y mocno zjechane przez krytyków. Przetrwa raczej “Up All Night”, które krytycy uznali za nie taki zÅ‚y serial, a i widzów ma nieco wiÄ™cej.

  37. That’s up to a jury. If a jury saw the entire video record shown in the movie, I would think they would conclude the teenagers are causing the motion. The jury doesn’t need to understand how it works, but they don’t need to understand how a car works either.
