Venezuelan pianist Gabriela Montero has severely attacked Dudamel’s El Sistema on her Twitter and Facebook pages: « On Monday, Eduardo Mendez (Executive Director of El Sistema) ‘Cachorro’ (Gustavo Dudamel’s right hand man), and other members of El Sistema, were photographed marching FOR Maduro’s regime. Yesterday, Armando Cañizales, a 17 year-old musician from El Sistema in Caracas, was murdered by the very same regime these people were legitimising – and have propagandised for 18 years – just a few days ago. Armando was protesting with the overwhelming majority against the barbarism that is now Venezuela’s reality. My sincere condolences to Armando’s family.
