Che: A Musical Tribute – Carlos Puebla, Jahmila, and Manu Chao

I meant to put out this post last Friday, October 9, the 42nd anniversary of the death of Che Guevara.

After Che’s 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 a rockin’ kickass version sung by a band called “Jahmila.”

In addition, last weekend in Havana, Manu Chao performed in tribute to Che. The third video shows the last 10 minutes of their concert.


Hasta siempre, Comandante!

Honduras Oye!
