Mano A Mano

Mano A Mano is a gay men's chorus in Cuba and said to be the first of its kind in the island country. The two-year-old group was launched by Fort Lauderdale filmmaker Fermin Rojas. Since June, the group has been on a US tour and performing with other gay choruses including the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles. The Cuban choir's last US stop is in Fort Lauderdale where they will perform with the Gay Men's Chorus of South Florida. I wrote a preview of that July 23 event for my paper the Sun Sentinel. The Cuban guy sing in English and Spanish and sometimes put a Latin twist on pop songs such as Culture Club's Karma Chameleon and Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody.
