CUBA: Che Guevara – a musical tribute on anniversary of his death

Posted on October 5, 2008

October 9 will mark the 41st anniversary of the death of Che Guevara.  After his death, Cuba’s most popular folk singer, Carlos Puebla, wrote a song, “Hasta Siempre, Comandante,” (Farewell Comandante) to honor him.  It is a very beautiful and compelling song.  Below are two versions:  the first is sung by Carlos Puebla and includes several pictures of Che and the second is sung by a band called “Jahmila” which interprets the song in a very modern way.

Hasta siempre, Comandante!
