Cuba’s independence day song “Cuba, I love you” has been banned from the country for a second time in less than a month, according to a ruling from the Supreme Court, but the ban does not affect its lyrics.
The song, written by Cuban artist Luis Arboleda, is set to be performed on the Independence Day, when the country celebrates its independence from Spain.
Arboleda’s group, the National Band, was one of a group of Cuban musicians who performed the song during the Cuban Revolution in the 1970s.
But the Supreme State Council, which has jurisdiction over the Supreme Courts, has recently asked the band to remove the lyrics from the song, which the band has already done.
In December, the Supreme Judicial Court said that the song was in violation of the country’s national anthem.
In a ruling last week, the court also banned the band from performing any other song on Independence Day.
The Supreme Court did not explain why it was ordering the band’s removal from the Independence day song.
The band has been performing the song on the island for nearly five years, but it has not been banned since December.
The group’s manager, Raul Fernandez, told Al Jazeera that the court ruling was the result of a court ruling that was “unnecessary and politically motivated.”
“It’s not just that the band is performing a song on independence day,” he said.
“The band is participating in the country that is celebrating independence, which is the first of its kind in Latin America.”
But Fernandez said that, in the future, the band may perform songs that “cancel” independence day or songs that celebrate other aspects of the revolution, such as the Cuban revolution itself.
The Cuban government, in a statement on Wednesday, condemned the ruling, calling it “an attempt to silence music and culture.”
“The Supreme Court of Cuba has ruled that our country’s National Band can’t perform its national anthem on independence [day],” the statement said.
Cuba’s National band plays a patriotic song to mark the countrys independence day.
The band’s manager Raul and singer Luis Arboleda perform during a rehearsal for the band at the National Music Center in Havana on February 21, 2017.
The country has long been a target for anti-government protests that have taken place in the past year, with at least one death and hundreds of injuries reported in the city of Santiago.
The Supreme Judicial Council has said that Cuba’s national song should be banned from any public events.
The court said the band had not been given permission to perform the song.
But the National Barrio Committee, a national union representing musicians, said the Supreme Supreme Court had the right to decide what music can and cannot be played on the country s Independence Day because of the current state of the independence day festivities.
The National Barricade Committee’s president, Jose Luis Lopez, told Reuters that the ruling was a “dangerous ruling”.
“It makes it clear that the state cannot ban music that is in full accord with our values,” Lopez said.
