Photo Album from Cuba: “A Midsummer Night’s Memory”

There were nights when each of their dreams gathered. The dreams became reality, and the reality became history. People with dreams can survive no matter what happens.
All the people were absorbed in music and dance. What we want, what we need, is not money. Somebody is looking for Cuba.
Costumes on passionate bodies. Sensuality and sensitivity overlap. They wore a dream.
This country might change its visitors’ standard of happiness. Who decided that we don’t have freedom? The goal of the journey of dreams that I’ve been looking for all along – that is Cuba.
Dance today. Dance tomorrow. Dance, dance and dance all night. Have a dream? Looking for a dream? Found a dream? Are you sure that you’re happy right now?
Seeing the bodies dance in Junko Koshino clothing, I remembered the sound from that night. We love it, this city. That is why we dance. That is why we sing. Singing comes from the heart.
Cuba is my energy. Love Salsa! tj

キューバ写真集 「夏の夜の夢の記憶」
何だろう。ここが共産圏だということを忘れてしまうこの開放感
彼らに誇りと信念とタフさをもたらしたその革命
10 年前の夏、たくさんの夢の扉が開いた。ここはキューバ。
そして、その前にはヘミングウェイがいた。
それぞれの夢が集まり、そして現実となり、
歴史となった夜があった
人間は夢があると、どんなことがあっても生きてゆけるね
音楽と踊りに没頭するすべての人々。
欲しいのは、必要なのは、お金じゃない
誰かがキューバを探している
情熱の肉体に纏われた衣装。重なり合う官能と感性
夢を着た
幸せの基準が、この国に来ると変わるかもしれない
僕達に自由がないなんて誰が決めた?
ずっと探していた夢の旅のゴール。それがキューバ
今日も踊る。明日も踊る。踊って踊って踊り明かそうよ
夢持ってる?夢探してる?夢見つけた?
今、幸せって大声で言える?
コシノジュンコを着た踊る肉体に、あの時の音が見えた
愛してるのよ、この街を。だから踊るの。だから唄うの
唄は心だ
CUBA は私のエネルギー。Love Salsa! tj
