PS : a post for my beautiful angel, Tamara. I know you LOVE this guy above and I wish I could give you more than his portraits—but it means that I have to go to Kensico and pull him out of his grave and I’m not sure I could do that :s — I love you no matter what happened, and happy birthday :)
Miguel Ángel Estrella by Jean Mohr, 1982.
Estrella developed the program “A Voice for Those Without a Voice”, which seeks to promote talented musicians who bring rich traditions from distant cultures. He became the symbol of liberty of all artists and intellectuals of Latin America. He also actively campaigned for human rights and the dissemination of music as an instrument of defence of human dignity and elevation of the human condition.
