peace & love

backstage (mejor dicho: side-stage) at the festival peace & love

the festival peace & love, a collaboration of sorts between cuba and sweden took place in late march of this year (2011). bands and musical acts from both nations alternated the presence on stage in genres ranging from hip hop to metal, house to funk, and of course rock. the two day festival took place in los jardines del tropical, a place that my buddy deemed "magical", with tree house like structures, a castle, and trees enveloped by vines and smaller trees adorning the landscape, adding to the surreal ambiance of seeing nationall famous cuban groups, and a few swedish groups i had heard before (looptroop - a hip hop group, and timbuktu and damn! - a group with a funk eclectic sound).
