“As we walk, all of our ancestors walk with us”. M.T. Garrett
The wall behind me is a tribute to few of the Cuban greatest intellectuals, artists, writers, thinkers. All those who, in my humble opinion, shaped the true Cuban values. A woman as Gertrudis Gomez de Avellaneda, (a prolific writer who in 1841 publish an antislavery novel !). Brindis de Salas, the black violinist and composer who in the 19th century directed the most popular band of its time... just to mention two exemples that comes to my mind right now. Hope that this ancestral legacy will make possible one day, that all the Cubans, despite the country where we are living and our political opinions, can huge each other as brothers and sisters that we are. Aché y bendiciones para todos

As a Chinese proverb said: When the roots are deep, there is no reason to fear the wind. All my strength, my joy, my perseverance, my spirituality, or whatever you might notice from the outside, all this is rooted in #havana #Cuba Thank you @jamaqueparadis for going back to my #origins

So proud to be in the cover of @jamaqueparadis wearing this dress by the greatest Cuban designer Carmen Fiol ! Carmen was like a grandmother to me, I use to spend countless hours at her home and she was the first contact I had with the #fashion and #hautecouture universe. Little by little she educated my taste, she had such a sense of detail...she taught me to always look at the clothes inside ( how are they finished) because for her what was near to your body was as important ( or even more) that what people see from the outside. Until her death she kept working with her hands. All the work you see on the front of this dress is made by her hands with a unique technique she developed called deshilado ( literally taking thread by thread to make the art work 😱) ! She made huge efforts to keep the Cuban women elegant despite the difficult economic situation we had. This is my way to say THANKS to her. I know that wherever Carmen is right now she’s smiling... ❤️ Photo by @titinastyle

I need to tell you about my experience in the violin museum in #cremona. When I was a child I dreamed of seeing and to play a Stradivarius or a Guarneri. Probably every little child passionate about violin has the same dream, but for a girl living in Cuba, growing up in middle of the toughest economical crisis ( we called this period of our history “Option Zero”) this was an unattainable dream. Standing in this museum, playing in this breathtaking auditorium I thought about all the times that my father took telephones cables and fabricated himself the strings for my violin so I could keep practicing. I thought about all the nights that my mother ( without electricity, suffocated by the Cuban heat) put a candle so I could learn my music score ...and if by any chance I wasn’t keeping the tempo, she started tapping the beats as a metronome for me. (A Cuban mother always has the right tempo 😂) Standing there in this place my heart was full of gratitude, to my parents, to my teachers, to LIFE... even now that I’m writing this long post I can barely contain my tears... Because nothing has been granted. We dream, we work hard, we believe with all our heart and here we are rising up because dreams are made possible if you try.
With love
Yily
