Submarino Amarillo

Our Back Room correspondent in Havana was at the very groovy rock club Yellow Submarine last week and saw the Cuban rock band Osamu. They performed soulful covers of songs by Oasis, the Beatles, Bon Jovi, Nirvana, Cee Lo Green, Eric Clapton, Amy Winehouse, Booker T. & the MG’s, the Lumineers, Pink Floyd, Grand Funk, Queen, Maroon 5, and more. Across the street from the Yellow Submarine is the John Lennon Park, with a wonderful sculpture of John. What a great corner… the John Lennon Park and the Yellow Submarine rock club!

    Chris, this is an EXTRAORDINARY corner in Havana! We love the park, the statue! People even bring flowers to the statue. To be honest, we have not being at the club yet because our daughter is a late sleeper and the place is always packed.
    Big Hugs for you and Carlotta.
    Luis and the rest of the SCUK Havana team

    Hey Chris!
    So cool, I look forward to sharing with you the movie “Soy Cuba”, when you come with your family to Staunton Hill. Soy Cuba is a poem with limited dialogue, but the images and the overall story will move you especially with your experience. The film took two years in production and was made in the early 1960’s in a collaberation between a Russian and a Cuban filmaker.
    Hope the spring is treating you well.
