U.S. Denies Visas To Cuban Supergroup

“A two-month US tour by the 15-piece Cuban jazz-pop band Cubanismo! has been canceled because its members were denied visas to enter the United States. The group had planned a 43-show, 34-city itinerary… Cubanismo!, made up of musicians from various Cuban bands, has played in the United States several times over the last decade, including last year.” The Justice Department has offered no explanation for the refusal to grant visas.
