Cuba experts say soon, we could be looking at an end to the U.S. embargo. Tampa has already begun a campaign to win the island’s business. But Miami has been far quieter.
Alina Brouwer, she comes from a family of musicians. Her father and uncle are both composers, and well known on the island. Alina fled to Miami in ‘92. Ever since, she’s been waiting for the death of Fidel Castro. She’s been waiting for a free Cuba.
"I dream about going back to Cuba very often", Brouwer said. "I see my family, my kids, especially, being able to walk around Havana"
Alina imagines opening up a recording studio in Cuba. Maybe a music school too. But Alina is like many exiles in Miami. She says she’s waiting for human rights in Cuba. And only then will she do business on the island.
