I have a passion for anything Classical, Rumba, Casino, Baladas, Flamenco, Jazz you name it I love it, and if it makes me move…well that’s even better. ¡Suénalo is full of all the great feel good sound that reminds me of how much I love being a woman. Which brings me to Saturday night, my boy Abner played at PAX in Downtown Miami with his band ¡Suénalo!, and I decided to take a drive in what seemed to be the coolest, and most beautiful night in Miami in a very long time.
Once I arrived it felt as if I had walked into Havana Cuba, circa 1950. There were models dress in Copa Dresses, which also included a Miss Cuba walking around the venue, this night was dedicated to some serious Spanish heritage.
Roots of Hope is an organization that is bringing thousands of people world wide to help empower the youth in Cuba, by providing the latest in technology, and allowing them the opportunity to be free by bringing out the young voices of the island.
Today, we encompass a dynamic and diverse group of young servant leaders throughout the U.S. with students at more than 55 universities and young professionals in Boston, New York, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, Chicago and Miami. We hope to make a positive impact on Cuba – an issue often tangled with pain, separation, fear, emotion, misunderstanding and politics – through academic and cultural initiatives guided by three basic principles: amor, amistad y esperanza (love, friendship and hope).
