I think what they’re trying to say is that the Cuban culture Minister, Abel Prieto, AKA Mullet Music Man, is going to “create” new genres of music and “find” new artists.
In most of the rest of the world, what people listen to and the popular artists are dictated by the free market where, by and large, people vote with their wallets , but in Castrolandia all choices need to made for the “masses” by the all knowing “elite”
Here’s one of the elites making the decisions on what’s hip and happening. He looks like he has a grip on what’s in style; complete with mullett, Elvis sidebuns and Elton John glasses!
