amazing news this morning

when i saw the government of argentina had published a stamp in memory of rock singer luis alberto spinetta, i had the idea to launch an online petition to the cuban government, to commemorate santiago feliu. an amazing singer songwriter -the voice of my generation-, and a friend whose untimely death last february still brings tears to my eyes. to many eyes

his sister, one of the first people to sign the petition, took it further, and the idea developed into a homage to the nueva trova movement. a set of stamps. noel nicola. sara gonzalez. emiliano salvador (my fave jazz piano EVER just followed by chick corea) and obviously santi. she just told us the plans are well ahead. a vice-minister of culture is in charge of the project

in the middle of many sad news, both personal and global, this is a ray of light

 welcome to havana upon tyne 3.0, let's fly together
