Read what the creator of the video said:

“With limited internet access and funds for technology, experiences like this can be precious in Cuba. He’s a very gifted musician, but it’s hard to even get things like strings in Cuba. He lives in a house feet from a train track with his beautiful wife and 2 kids. If you want to donate some supplies to him, like nylon strings or a used cell phone”.

Stephen “Stevie” Ray Vaughan (Dallas, October 3, 1954 – August 27, 1990) was an American electric guitarist, singer and songwriter. He was the leader of Double Trouble. Born in Dallas, Vaughan moved to Austin at age 17 when he began his musical career.
