Walking to Guantanamo - book & photos by Richard Fleming

Walking to Guantanamo by Richard Fleming

Heard about this book on NPR today and, besides the great Cuban music, the very concept of this traveler's journey was intriguing... To walk all across the island nation.. what he must have seen, heard, experienced..

The world can be a very different place on foot.

And this is the most powerful piece of the lyrics (peace), the strongest message of wisdom:

Y para el cruel que me arranca
El corazon con que vivo
Cardo ni ortiga cultivo
Cultivo la rosa blanca

Wich translates to:

And (even) for the cruel one who would tear out this
heart with which I live
I do not cultivate thistles nor nettles
I cultivate a white rose

Peace. Peace. Never enough Peace...

That's a wonderful take on it, a slightly different rythm than what I have on my copy of their album. I love it. It's such a sweet song, it just makes me happy just to hear it.
hmmm. maybe I should move to Cuba. ;o)

It's a song I learned with a band of schoolmates (chorale) at the intermediate school, a song we performed at the year end celebrations under the supervision of the music teacher. A lovely souvenir, a beautiful melody...

I find the following version very authentic and reflects best the "allegria de la alma sudamericana".

GUANTANAMERA
Original music by Jose Fernandez Diaz
Music adaptation by Pete Seeger & Julian Orbon
Lyric adaptation by Julian Orbon, based on a poem by Jose Marti

Yo soy un hombre sincero
De donde crecen las palmas
Yo soy un hombre sincero
De donde crecen las palmas
Y antes de morirme quiero
Echar mis versos del alma

Chorus:
Guantanamera
Guajira Guantanamera
Guantanamera
Guajira Guantanamera

Mi verso es de un verde claro
Y de un carmin encendido
Mi verso es de un verde claro
Y de un carmin encendido
Mi verso es un ciervo herido
Que busca en el monte amparo

Chorus

I am a truthful man from this land of palm trees
Before dying I want to share these poems of my soul
My verses are light green
But they are also flaming red

(the next verse says,)
I cultivate a rose in June and in January
For the sincere friend who gives me his hand
And for the cruel one who would tear out this
heart with which I live
I do not cultivate thistles nor nettles
I cultivate a white rose

Cultivo la rosa blanca
En junio como en enero
Qultivo la rosa blanca
En junio como en enero
Para el amigo sincero
Que me da su mano franca

Chorus

Y para el cruel que me arranca
El corazon con que vivo
Y para el cruel que me arranca
El corazon con que vivo
Cardo ni ortiga cultivo
Cultivo la rosa blanca

Chorus

Con los pobres de la tierra
Quiero yo mi suerte echar
Con los pobres de la tierra
Quiero yo mi suerte echar
El arroyo de la sierra
Me complace mas que el mar

Chorus
