Pablo Milanés Arias (born in Bayamo, Cuba on February 24, 1943) is a Cuban singer-songwriter and guitar player. He studied at a conservatory in Havana. He is considered[by whom?] one of the founders of the Cuban nueva trova, along with Silvio Rodríguez and Noel Nicola. He is a pianist and guitarist whose Brazilian-like melodies set him apart from the raw style of Silvio Rodríguez.

Biography[edit]

While fully supportive of the Cuban Revolution, Milanés has been publicly critical of some aspects of the Cuban regime. He took official positions but, lately, he has allegedly avoided participating in pro-government campaigns;.[1][2] On January 25, 2007, he signed a petition supporting Puerto Rico's independence from the United States of America .[3]
