I was reading one of those magazines that you find in the waiting area of your beauty shop, that don’t have anything to do with beauty shops, when I came across an article that brought an instant smile to my face.
It was a Friday and I had been waiting all week to finally see Erick, Cimafunk! I had been anticipating the concert for weeks, because I love him and his music! As soon as we arrived at Havana’s Fabrica de Arte Cubano, FAC, I realized we weren’t getting in. It was close to 11pm, when the concert was supposed to start, and the streets around FAC were jammed with people, we couldn’t even park the car. There were people everywhere, and most were walking away from the FAC. My disappointment soon passed, as I felt happy for him, it brought me great satisfaction to see that his music was drawing so many fans. Amazing! That was Cimafunk’s concert, so many fans showed-up seeking his treatment, that the Fabrica de Arte couldn’t hold the spectators who showed up.
Cimafunk, Erick Iglesias, is an artist who has captivated countless and diverse fans, in Cuba and around the world. “Cimafunk fever” is just getting started, his patients continue to seek his therapy wherever he is, and while the venues where he performs continue to get bigger they can’t hold his new fans.
