The members of Combinación de La Habana, Eugenio Sierra and Rafael Castellanos, affirmed that they never did ‘privaditos’ during the pandemic, and only now that some restrictions have been lifted and everyone has been vaccinated are they performing shows.
“In the case of Combination of Havana, we did not do private things throughout the pandemic. When everything was reopened and they began to vaccinate, we went back to work there, but we did abide by the protocol and what the Government said. We did not do anything private, we were at home ”, Raphael stated.
“The most affected sector was art in general and, sometimes, I have met people who tell me that they do private things because they have to feed their children. I understand, but if you get sick you are left without health, without food for your children, without anything, but we put up with it and waited for everything to reopen.Eugene added.

Eugenio, the salsa movement is strong in Peru…
Yes, but a few years ago, like 3 or 4, salsa kind of declined a bit because all these trends of urban rhythms like hip hop, reggaeton came out. Now, after the pandemic, the salsa and timba genres have become quite strong because timba orchestras have come out, which is what we do.
