Cristian Castro heads to Cuba to seek fresh music inspiration

After his banana hammock incident on Twitter and his eyeliner-wearing heavy metal band in 2014, Cristian Castro has toned it down a bit. We can only assume this from his decent and serene posts on social media. Castro had shut down his Twitter account in June and made a comeback five months later, sharing photos of his beautiful baby girl and breathtaking sites from his traveling fun. SEE ALSO: 7 Reasons we’re glad Cristian Castro is back on Twitter One of his most recent snapshots is a photo of Castro in a nice Guayabera shirt next to the iconic Cuban folk singer Silvio Rodriguez.  Along with the picture, read a part of Rodriguez’s song “El Necio.” Yo no sé lo que es el destino, caminando fui lo que fui. Allá Dios, que será divino: yo me muero como viví. pic.twitter.com/cYKeaUPWKJ — Cristian (@CristianCastro) January 10, 2015 Though it’s a nice picture and all, there’s more than meets the eye. As it turns out, Castro was visiting Cuba early January, where he attended a free outdoor concert Rodriguez gave in the capital of Havana on Jan. 9, reports Billboard. Argentine soccer player Diego Maradona was also at the show, enjoying the classics such as “Ojala,” “Unicornio Azul” and “Quien Fuera,” from front row. Now, Castro, who is a romantic pop star of the ’90s, is set to record cover versions of Rodriguez’s songs, according to Cuban and Mexican media reports. No other information has been announced regarding this interesting news and the Mexican singer is yet to confirm the rumors, but we bet it’ll be a piece of cake for Castro to produce such album. The “Por Amarte Asi” singer already has two tribute albums out, including one that honors Mexican crooner Jose Jose, which topped the number one spot on Top Latin Albums. For Rodriguez, on the other hand, it won’t be the first time an artist pays homage to his music.
