Conjunto Artístico de las FAR (FAR Artistic Ensemble). Similar to the American USO, it provided entertainment to the troops, including those in the front line (Nicaragua, Angola, Ethiopia, etc.). Being a member of CAFAR was considered part of the mandatory military service, although civilians could also work there under contract. The most reknown artists of the Cuban Nueva Trova, like Silvio Rodriguez, Pablo Milanes, Vicente Feliu and others were part of CAFAR and visited troops during so-called misiones internacionalistas.
In these pictures, my personal friend Liuba María Hevia during her service in CAFAR. Photos taken in Nicaragua and Ethiopia in the early 80s.
