President Obama addressed the Cuban people from an iconic theater in Old Havana Today, promising a new chapter in the history of Cuba. During the keynote address of this historic visit, Obama made several cultural references; even giving a special shout-out to Pitbull, along with Celia Cruz and Gloria Estefan.
“So even as our governments became adversaries, our people continued to share these common passions, particularly as so many Cubans came to America. In Miami or Havana, you can find places to dance the Cha-Cha-Cha or the Salsa, and eat ropa vieja. People in both of our countries have sung along with Celia Cruz or Gloria Estefan, and now listen to reggaeton, like Pitbull.”
