Pablo Milanés, who died this Tuesday in Madrid at the age of 79, was a cultural reference point for the Cuban socialist system and the Latin American left.

The founder of Nueva Trova, along with Silvio Rodríguez and Noel Nicola, devoted part of his musical repertoire to the ideas unleashed by the Fidel Castro-led revolution in 1959.

However, although the Castro regime continues to this day, the support of one of the reference artists has gradually decreased.

Over the years, Milanés began to describe the island’s government as «oppressive». claimed that socialism was a «failure» and called for a transition from the existing one-party system to democracy.
