We visited the Cuban musician Kelvis Ochoa in Madrid in 2005. A year later we met El Mago, another Cuban musician, in Athens. We discovered they were childhood friends and wanted to bring them together to play in our Bar Candela project.
Because of their immigrant situation, they had not been in contact for a long time. As some necessary papers to travel were lacking, we organized a meeting between them on the Internet.

En el 2005 nosotros visitamos a Kelvis Ochoa, un músico cubano que vive en Madrid . Un ano mas tarde, conocimos al Mago, otro músico cubano que vive en Atenas. Descubrimos que eran amigos desde la niñez y que no estaban en contacto por mucho tiempo, hubiéramos querido traerlos a tocar juntos en nuestro proyecto Bar Candela.
Pero sus estatus de inmigrante, no lo permitió. Carecían de algunos papeles necesarios para viajar, y decidimos organizar una conferencia vía Internet.
