One of a fleet of diesel electric submarines the Soviet Navy called Project 641, B-39 was commissioned in the early 1970s and served on active duty for more than 20 years.
300 feet in length and displacing more than 2000 tons, B-39 is among the largest conventionally powered submarines ever built. She was designed to track U.S. and NATO warships throughout the world's oceans. B-39, assigned to the Soviet Pacific fleet, undoubtedly stalked many of the U.S. Navy's ships home ported in San Diego. Now, less than 20 years after the collapse of the Berlin Wall signaled the end of the Cold War, she will be berthed on San Diego Bay amidst her former adversaries. Soviet Project 641 submarines, classified as 'Foxtrot' by NATO, are essentially larger and more powerful versions of German World War II era U-boats. Low-tech but lethal, she carried 24 torpedoes while she was on patrol-some capable of delivering low-yield nuclear warheads. B-39 carried a crew of 78 and could dive to a depth of 985 feet before threatening the integrity of her nickel steel pressure hull. The Soviet and then Russian Federation's navies deployed these submarines from the mid 1950s through the early 1990s. They played a part in many of the Cold War's most tense moments including the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Live from BB Kings Blues club, a special song with subtle Latin, Worldbeat & Afro/Cuban flavor blended with Soul/R&B! This is different concert footage, than that of same song, which featured Samba, Capoeira & Salsa. Different "offering" or perspective, but same heart! Leading into the Brazilian influenced "Eu Te Amo". *Heart's Song, is from my upcoming CD "Soul Ascension" while "Eu Te Amo" can be found on "Of Life"
Live concert clip of my song "Heartsong" (CD "Soul Ascension" TBA) This "song" is one, which never lets you forget your roots. I am from Spain, but have studied Brazilian Samba & Cuban Mambo/Salsa & wanted to pay tribute to these beautiful cultures! I realized in writing this song how many people are "away from home" starting a new life in a new place, perhaps happy to be where they are but feeling like an extension of themselves is "elsewhere"

Music: Cirque du Soleil - Pokoi(Sasha Remix)
PUSHING THE LIMIT OF ARENA PERFORMANCE
Created and directed by Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon, DELIRIUM is a multifaceted event of unprecedented proportion featuring Cirque du Soleil music remixed. Driven by an urban tribal beat and awe-inspiring visuals, musicians, singers and dancers transform the arena into joyous frenzy.
DELIRIUM is the quest for balance in a world that is increasingly out of sync with reality. It pushes the limit of arena performance through technical magnitude, human introspection and creative prowess.
DELIRIUM is an urban tale, a state-of-the-art mix of music, dance, theatre, and multimedia. Pumped by this re-energized Cirque du Soleil rhythm, DELIRIUM transports audiences into a universe of delirious sensory folly.
TURNING MUSIC INTO MOTION
For the first time in Cirque du Soleil history lyrics have been created for the instrumental tracks and real words integrated in place of invented language, bringing to the music a fresh poetic dimension. And also, for the first time Cirque du Soleil puts musicians and singers center-stage with their music as the driving force of this gigantic event.
In all, 20 of Cirque du Soleil's most memorable musical moments originally created by René Dupéré, Benoît Jutras and Violaine Corradi have been re-mixed by Quebec producer, composer and arranger Francis Collard. The result is a hyper-energizing urban tribal beat that explodes with electronic sounds, percussions and world rhythms.
THE STAGE AND PROJECTIONS
This unique, large-scale event may be the most massive technical production ever created to tour arenas.
540 feet of projections dominate the scene - the equivalent in width of almost four IMAX screens - setting the stage for a colossal multimedia presentation. Images projected range from prerecorded visuals to manipulated live feeds that create interactions between the show and the audience.
DELIRIUM showcases 36 talented and multidisciplinary artists which include 6 musicians, 6 singers, 12 dancers, 9 acrobats and 3 main characters.
To heighten the musical experience, DELIRIUM is infused with acrobatic dances as well as classic Cirque du Soleil feats including aerial, acrosport and hand balancing acts.
Amongst the featured musicians are percussionist brothers El Hadji Fall Diouf and Pape Abdou Karim Diouf of Senegal; keyboardist and band leader Ric'key Pageot; Italian-born percussionist Raffaele Artiglieri; Brazilian Italo-Cuban singer Dessy Di Lauro; Amanda Stott; Chad Oliver and Jennifer Hamady.
Dibujos animados cubanos.El bloqueo al que está sometido Cuba es el más largo y duro al que ha estado sometido un pueblo, en toda la historia humana. A pesar de esa persecución genocida, Cuba, un país del tercer mundo ha demostrado que el reparto de la riqueza es mejor que su acumulación y que la economía socialista, como ya predijo Einstein, es superior a la fascistoliberal del capitalismo. La población cubana tiene a pesar del pequeño PIB, una esperanza mayor a la de Estados Unidos, una mortandad infantil menor a la de esa potencia mundial y su Índice de Desarrollo Humano es Alto, ocupando el puesto 50 de entre todos los países del mundo.
The blockade to which Cuba is submitted is the longest and hard to that a people has been submitted, in the whole human history. In spite of this genocidal pursuit, Cuba, a country of the third world has demonstrated that the distribution of the richness is better than its accumulation and that the socialist economy, as already Einstein predicted, is superior to the fascistoliberal of the capitalism. The Cuban population has in spite of the small GDP, a hope bigger than that of The United States, an infantile minor mortality to that of this world power and its Index of Human Development is High, occupying the position 50 of between all the countries of the world.
