Cuban Band Cries: “Obama, Obama Get Crazy and Come to Havana!”

Last week, while I was at nightclub in Cuba, a band started playing a song praising President Obama. NG La Banda broke into the tune around 1 AM at the Casa de la Music in Havana. “Obama, Obama get crazy and come to Havana,” they screamed, while a meme-y video of Obama dancing behind a podium played on the screen. The crowd went wild and just like that, a tiny island nation that was at odds with the U.S. for decades showed more support for an American president than does the Republican party.
