The singer, Denise de Kalafe sued the Kiwanis Club of Little Havana after the community organization struck her from the list of performers scheduled to perform at Calle Ocho, a massive annual Hispanic festival here, because she had performed in Cuba in 1981. Ms. de Kalafe claimed that after the incident her record company canceled her contract and a performance at Madison Square Garden in New York was also called off.
A Cuban exile group has banned a well-known Brazilian singer from taking part in a street fair in Miami's Little Havana neighborhood this month because she performed in Cuba a decade ago. The Kiwanis Club of Little Havana barred Denise de Kalafe from the annual Calle Ocho Festival because it feared her appearance might provoke violence by anti-communist Cuban exiles. De Kalafe, who lives in Mexico and has a single currently on the Latin pop charts, said at a news conference that she went to Cuba in 1979 at the request of the Brazilian government. She said she opposes Cuba's communist government, and "went to Cuba to sing to the people."
