Cuba's rap battle with dissidents
BBC, 05 Apr 2021
A rap and reggaeton hit by a group of well-known Cuban musicians has deeply angered the communist-run government.
The song, which has been viewed more than four million times on YouTube, blasts the dire economic situation on the island.
The title 'Patria y Vida' or 'Fatherland and Life' plays on one of Fidel Castro's favourite revolutionary slogans "Fatherland or Death".
Havana has described the artists as mercenaries and released its own pro-revolutionary song in response, albeit with limited success.
Produced by Will Grant, Colm O'Molloy and Greg Brosnan.
