Cuban singer-songwriter Silvio Rodríguez will offer a concert in Panama during a parallel even to the Americas Summit, the organizers of a social movements gathering revealed yesterday, El Nuevo Siglo reports.

“Silvio Rodríguez’s concert is confirmed for the evening of April 9,” Olmedo Beluche, one of the organizers of the People’ Summit told Agence France Presse.
The author of compositions like “Ojalá”, “Sueño con serpientes”, “Monólogo” or “Te doy una canción” will offer the free concert at the Universidad de Panamá.
The concert by Rodríguez, 68, will take place on the first day of this alternative event to the Americas Summit, which will bring together at the Panamanian capital more than 3,000 members of social movements from across the continent.
“Silvio’s songs have for forty years expressed Latin America’s struggle for independence, solidarity and social justice,” Beluche said.

Rodríguez will arrive in Panama with the Cuban delegation to the alternative summit. Its members are planning to demand that the President of the United States, Barack Obama, revoke the decree that classifies Venezuela as a “threat” to his country’s security.
Rodríguez, who is also an artist, poet and deputy, has been a defender of the Cuban Revolution since Fidel Castro came to power in 1959.

His more than twenty albums include Días y Flores (1975), Al final de este viaje (1978), Rabo de nube (1980), Unicornio (1982) Expedición (2002) and Segunda cita (2010).
The People’s Summit will take place from 9-11 April, whereas the Americas’ Summit, which brings together the heads of state from the continent will take place from 10-11 April.
