Producer AngelLaCienca on What It Is Like Growing Up in Cuba


“Growing up in Cuba is very difficult, over there we don’t have too many opportunities. We can work all our lives and have no results or benefits especially in the music business.”

Originally from Cuba, producer AngelLaCiena has achieved a lot of things many people in the music industry could be proud of. Songs on the Madden franchise games and other records placing at #11 in the world.

“Back in 2008-09 when I started to make music we didn’t even have the internet in Cuba. We had no computer or equipment to make music, but we managed to make it work, and I thank God for those moments because that’s what made me who I am today.”

How was music culture growing up in Cuba?

“Cuba has a rich music culture, that’s what inspires me to start making music, but like I said before we didn’t have too much knowledge about the business or opportunities, we only did it to have a good time. That feeling when you see people singing your song while you are playing it live was amazing and that’s what kept me going even though I had to ask my friend for his computer to make music.”

What are Cuban families like growing up?

“Cuban families are the best, they teach us how to make it work knowing that the situation is not the best over there. I am who I am today because my family, especially my mom, till this day doesn’t even know how I learned how to make music. She’s my number one supporter. “

How did growing up in Cuba change who you are today?

“Growing up in Cuba changed me a lot, why? Because I learn how to work hard for what I want in life and to never give up on my dreams.”

What Obstacles are in Cuba versus Other countries?

“There’s a lot of obstacles in Cuba if I start naming them we’ll never finish but one of them is not have the ability or the resources to show the world your music or your talent, so many talented musicians, producers artist/rappers in Cuba working hard creating music with that dream of one day, they can live off of their work, here I think the only obstacles for me was the language because I had to learn how to communicate and it wasn’t easy, till this day I am still learning.”

Any final words?

To all those producers or artists out there living in a country where you see there are no opportunities, don’t give up on your dreams, I know it is hard but DON’T GIVE UP!!

I am an avid traveler and loves writing. I love writing about beauty and fashion. When I am not traveling or writing, you'll find me modeling.
