Cuba: Censoring “El Chupi”

Generation Y blogs about El Chupi Chupi, a hugely popular song in Cuba right now, which has been panned by the Cuban Music Institute, saying: “Controversy will arise, of course, and generate debate, but no public official will be able to erase it with the stroke of a pen, because musical tastes don’t change through censorship.” Translating Cuba posts the video for the song, which has been nominated for a Lucas Prize, here.
