Cuban artists dedicate song of hope and resistance against Coronavirus



Ciego de Ávila, Mar 2 .- A song now runs through social networks performed by musicians from Ciego de Ávila, as a melody of struggle and resistance against COVID-19, causing thousands of deaths worldwide.

A touch of hope, as it is called the song, created by Yunior Batle Peña, a member of the group of Dayani Gutiérrez, gathers several singers and musicians.

Margarita del Valle Chávez, a specialist from the Musicávila company , explained to the Invasor website that the work “is a fusion of various genres; peasant music, rap, ballad, rumba and timba are combined ”.

Released at the end of the radio program Mesa Redonda, last Monday, A touch of hope has a video clip directed by Jorge Luis Neyra.

The video also incorporates dance through the performance of the D´Armas Dance group , directed by Yoankis de Armas.

Young creators these days share home performances through social media, post addresses for Internet readings, tips and guidelines for staying home, as well as small performances with puppets from the Polichinela group to stimulate the little ones to wash hands and maintain appropriate hygiene behaviors.

With the slogan El arte salva, AHS members such as Rainer, Adalys , René, and Yomel , among others, give away their performances to help the family continue to enjoy music and poetry from the safety of their homes. (Text and Photo: ACN)
