    "CUBA, ADIOS" BY LORENZO PABLO MARTINEZ

    in Books

    Between 1960 and 1962 more than 14,000 Cuban children escaped Fidel Castro’s communist regime as part of an airlift known as Operación Pedro Pan. LORENZO PABLO MARTÍNEZ was one of these children. In CUBA, ADIÓS: A Young Man's Journey to Freedom, Martínez vividly recounts his participation in a program that bridged two different cultures and achieved great political significance over the years. At eighteen, he forfeits a music scholarship to Prague to accept an unknown future of exile in America without knowing the language, money to pursue an education, or family to help. Plagued by guilt around his sexual identity and having to care for a younger brother, Martínez forges ahead to become the composer of his future; later he opens the doors that enable his sisters and parents to join him after a harrowing sojourn in Mexico City. With the same determination, he attends college and pursues a music education, obtaining a master’s degree from the Manhattan School of Music, then a doctorate from Columbia University. Even after his music compositions are published and performed on television and at international festivals, Martínez feels restless and spiritually unfulfilled. Until, that is, he is able to define the true music of his freedom. CUBA, ADIÓS is a poignant, thoughtful account of one boy’s survival and self-acceptance, written with unflinching honesty and a wry humor.

    THE ROAD HAWGS RADIO NETWORK-CLASSIC CHROME-MOTORCYCLING IN CUBA

    in Lifestyle

    On February 8th, 1963, under the leadership of President John F. Kennedy, the United States severed all ties with the nation of Cuba. Up until that point citizens of Cuba had access to purchasing American goods of all types, including motorcycles. After this travel ban was instituted, these citizens no longer had direct access to parts and accessories to keep these American motorcycles running. Thus began decades of shade-tree wrenching and innovation like none other. The island of Cuba was essentially stuck in time, with its citizens continuing to operate these historic vehicles for more than 50 years. With the recent talk of the United States Government moving to relieve the long-standing embargo, our special guests took the opportunity to visit the island nation and see for themselves what the motorcycle culture was like. The chance to see these antique machines in daily operation and use is for many, the chance of a lifetime. Essentially our special guests Joe Sparrow and Kevin Bean’re took a step back into time and documented the daily life for the legendary motorcyclists of Cuba.
