Starting a new music magazine anywhere today is a risky business — some would call it crazy. How about starting a new music magazine in a country where, as a citizen, you can’t legally start your own magazine. Where there is no advertising. Where an infrastructure to publish a magazine to 21st century standards does not exist, even if it were accessible to an independent publisher. And where publishing photos of music and film stars flies in the face of a long-held taboo on the cult of personality in a country where the idea of celebrity was frequently frowned upon by Fidel Castro himself.
Robin Pedraja did it anyway.
