Coco Value rocks nostalgia. His move to the United States, three decades ago, is phenomenal. And he flutters even more if he steps on his little plot of land again, the Dominican Republic, where he was born 85 years ago. On Tuesday night, when he received a tribute from the ombudsman at the Jaragua Hotel, it was one of those days full of memories and emotions for him and his fans.
The legendary musician starred in a landmark concert in which he recalled live stellar moments as part of the spirit of Dominican folk music. And also as a guard in defense of the liberties of the Dominican people.
Coco is not just a musical icon. His strong political positions against the regime of Joaquín Balaguer (1966-1978, and 1986-1996) and in defense of democracy elevate him to a high national rank.
“The youth of those times wear our pants so that the Dominican Republic has the rule of law,” He hung in the middle of his show with an orchestra of dozens of musicians and was directed by his son, Ramon Orlando.
Coco is a loyal Dominican diaspora, who lives abroad, but has his mind and heart in his country.
Always aware of the social and political situation, he feels that unlike past years, the Dominican Republic is currently experiencing a moment of hope.
“Now, though there are some things, I think the doors open and I live in the States, with my heart here, And what was said two or three years ago is said now less or perhaps not, so there is hope on the way.”
The tribe’s interpreter celebrated that the changes he had longed for were taking place. Once he thought that he would die and that he would not see “the day of the new dream, but now there is a awakening, and though death tells me Coco, it is like looking at me, and I said to him: – Wait, wait for the country is advancing where I want it.”
Nevertheless, he issued his warning to the audience present: “Gentlemen, we must avoid going back to the era when one of the doors of his house was opened and there were signs saying: – In this house Trujillo is the chief.”
Musical themes. Cuco Valoy brought to the stage a handful of his music store, especially merengue, salsa and his son. There was no shortage of “carnival fruits” or “juliana”. Other nicknames: “Pasitocolombiano”, “El judan” and “La maldita cola”. He was also accompanied by Henry Garcia in singing classics such as “Micharin”, “Sisi is the Empress and Ricardo the Emperor” and “Nassio Varon”.
Event. The “Fundamental Rights Ceremony” was held in the context of the first anniversary of Pablo Ulloa’s assumption of the position of Ombudsman.
“Tonight we are going to get to know the man who stood out for his participation in the fight for Dominican rights,” Ulloa said before handing over the plaque.
behavior position. Although nostalgia prevailed, during the event Coco was also a joker even with himself, and a great dancer all night, even with one of the dancers. He also has a miraculous memory.
passionate. The musician was shocked by the murder of Orlando Jorge Mira, Minister of the Environment. Homeland, he said, “the good man” was snatched from his arms.
