My Co Host Luis Serrano, founding member of Miami Latin Boys which later became Miami Sound Machine and I celebrate the end of 2012 with our listeners.
Serrano was born in the Province of Camaguey, Central Cuba, which Unesco designated in 2008 as a World Heritage Site. The Spanish colonizers followed medieval European influences in Camaguey in terms of urban layout and traditional construction of the city. The neoclassical, eclectic, Art Deco, Neo-colonial, some Art Nouveau and rationalism designs would naturally make a nest for an artist of Serrano's caliber to incubate his talents.
Serrano recalls music being a part of his life from the time he was an infant, his mother singing him lullabies, then listening to the rhythms of Cuban music on the radio and television. Luis Serrano feels his love of music entered his soul and rooted in his spirit when he a child.
Luis remembers his hometown's beautiful landscapes of the countryside in Cuba. The large homes he visited when he was a child, where art and paintings hung on the walls now awakening a desire to express himself on canvas with colors and sharing with his fans the amazing talent he was blessed with.
Today, Poetry surges in Serrano as he goes about daily life. Stories, events, people and emotions that move him, help erupt the volcano of ideas that he finds necessary to put on paper.
It is an honor to have my friend Luis Serrano on Cubanarama to wrap up this memorable year.

BIO: LUIS GONZALEZ
Luis González nació en La Habana, Cuba, donde pasó los primeros siete años de su vida. Su madre, viuda y con tres hijos, huyó del estado comunista con sus niños en remolque. La familia se mudo a Culver City, California, un municipio de Los Ángeles. Aunque lejos de su patria, Luis se dio cuenta que llevaba a Cuba en el alma, en su sangre cuando en el sexto grado, hizo un reporte sobre su país y ahí comenzó una relación amorosa con su patria que continúa hasta el dia de hoy. Desde la edad escolar primaria, Luis supo que llevaba la escritura en su sangre. "Siempre me ha gustado escribir, desde niño y supongo que siempre he sido autor independient. Cuando estaba en el tercer grado, después de sólo haber estado en este país un par de años, escribí dos cuentos. Uno se llama Las Zapatillas Mágicas, el otro, Los Delfines. Tomé hojas de papel que doblé y grapé, y no sólo escribí los cuentos, sino los ilustré e hice la portada y todo por ellos. Todavía tengo estos dos primeros libros míos, y ahora que miro hacia atrás me digo, “De verdad que siempre fui escritor, por lo menos en mi alma." Hasta hoy esos dos libritos siguen siendo dos de mis posesiones más preciadas. Luis estudio y se graduó de UCLA con licenciatura en literatura inglés y una concentración en composición y literatura española. A Luis le inspira profundamente y es conmovido por la política, la religión y las artes, cuales forman hilos de la tela en su escribir.
Luz: una novela que amarra esos tres componentes pero al estilo cubano.

The Philosophy of Spiritism with Admir Serrano author of The End of Death: How Near-Death Experiences Prove the Afterlife
Admir Serrano, is very active in a spiritual philosophy/religion called Spiritism, which is very popular in Bazil, and he is involved in bringing it to the USA.
Spiritism is based on the five books of the Spiritist Codification written by French educator Hypolite Léon Denizard Rivail under the pseudonym Allan Kardec reporting seances in which he observed a series of phenomena that were attributed to incorporeal intelligence (spirits).
Admir is an unabashed believer in the immortality of the human spirit, is a long time researcher, writer and lecturer on paranormal phenomena such as out-of-body experiences (OBEs), near-death experiences (NDEs), deathbed visions (DBVs), after-death communication (ADC), reincarnation, mediumship and the afterlife. His interest in these topics began when he started having spontaneous OBEs and wanted to understand the phenomenon. He has worked as a hospice volunteer providing spiritual support to terminally ill patients, at which time he could witness first hand the deathbed vision phenomenon. Academically, he has studied Business Administration, Liberal Studies, Psychology, Theology and Neuropsychology. He is the author of three books on related topics in his native Portuguese language. In his native Brazil he has been a guest in several TV and radio shows. The End of Death is his first book book in English.
