Cuban Heavy Metal Band HIPNOSIS Seeks Asylum In United States - July 24, 2013
According to the AFP, Cuban heavy metal band HIPNOSIS requested political asylum after arriving in Miami Monday morning (July 22).
Ramiro Pupo, the lead singer of the six-member group, was the first HIPNOSIS musician to seek asylum, explaining that his daughter already lives in Miami.
"It's not something we had thought about until we got here," HIPNOSIS bassist Fanny Tachin told AFP.
"Once we saw that [Pupo had requested asylum], we all decided to follow," Tachin added.
HIPNOSIS was on its way to Oakland, California to record an album.
A number of Cuban artists and athletes have defected from Cuba over the past few years. In 2008, seven members of the Cuban Olympic soccer team decided to stay after their game against the U.S. team in Florida. Cuban ballet dancer Rolando Sarabia also defected in 2005.
