Playing in front of several hundred thousand fans at the Peace Without Borders concert, Juanes bucked the authoritarian regime led by the Castro brothers by chanting, "Cuba libre! Cuba libre!" ("Free Cuba!")
At the very end of the show, The Herald says, Juanes shouted: ``Cuba libre! Cuba libre!'' (Free Cuba!) And then chanted, ``One Cuban family! One Cuban family!''
Reached by phone in Havana shortly after the concert ended, Juanes said the day was indeed about much more than music.
``There aren't words to talk about something so huge, something that's so beyond music,'' he told the newspaper. ``This is the power of art, the power of music. We're so happy because the people are happy, and that's what matters to us.''
