'bridges' to cuba, built note by note


by justin pritchard


nearly 50 american musicians, from gladys knight to bonnie raitt to burt
bacharach, are writing history through song with their cuban counterparts
during a week-long festival held despite ongoing tensions between havana and
washington.


the music bridges around the world festival, produced by los angeles
songwriter alan roy scott, began sunday evening when a planeload of
performers arrived in havana.


this week, the u.s. and european artists will compose new songs with the
elite of cuba's music community, among them salsero juan formell and cuban
jazz master chucho valdes. the festival culminates monday with a performance
of the new works.


"i'm really pleased to be here and thrilled to learn from great musicians,"
said peter buck of r.e.m.


organizers picked the names of american and cuban artists from a hat: raitt,
for example, will work with actor-turned-composer woody harrelson. despite
the random drawing, indigo girls amy ray and emily saliers ended up
together. each u.s. pair will work with a pair of cubans.


late arrivals like jimmy buffett and james taylor will come primarily for
the concert at the 5,000-seat karl marx theater, the same venue that hosted
billy joel and others in 1979, the last such american star-studded event in
havana.


both cuban and american promoters have taken pains to insist that the event
is not political.


"i'm just here to make music. we have no interest in politics," scott told
reporters. "music is one powerful tool in the world that can and should be
able to build bridges between people and cultures in a way that other things
cannot."


arturo sandoval, the cuban-born musician who recently became a u.s. citizen,
urged american artists not to attend because the event might reflect well on
fidel castro. "the cuban government always uses celebrities . . . for
political propaganda purposes," he said at february's grammy awards. he
asked stars not to "let the cuban government use their image for propaganda."

[sherlyn's note: this message was originally sent to the indigo
girls mailing list at netspace.org.]

hello to all in the land of indigo,


just thought i would let everyone know that on cnn headline news that
footage of the musicians who are in cuba, including clips and mention of
indigo girls, has been aired during the the 'lifestyles' segment at 10:25 am
and 11:25 am, and will probably run in that segment several more times, if
not all day.  there is footage of amy playing a mandolin and emily playing
guitar while collaborating with cuban musicians.  hope you can catch it.


take care and peace!
