FILM & DISCUSSION
The film is a behind-the-scenes look at Afro-Cuban music’s role in the daily life of Cubans. Filmmaker Gary Keys brings the audience into the heart and soul of Havana, through a vibrant mosaic of street musicians, big bands, dancers, religious rituals, and classic cars. Keys shows us Afro-Cuban music in New York City, with the music and commentary of jazz legends Billy Taylor, Candido Camero, and Chico OFarrill.
