TO GO WITH STORY CARLOS VARELA In this June 7, 2011 photo, Carlos Varela, the singer-songwriter of Nueva Trova from Havana, Cuba, discusses his political views and upcoming tour during an interview in Miami. In the 1980s he joined the Nueva Trova musical movement, a political and poetic musical genre connected with the Cuban Revolution. Nowadays Varela's music is known for its open criticism of the status quo, though it is still considered Nueva Trova, which itself began as a reaction to the unjust conditions that led to the Revolution.
