Fantastic documentary with catchy music and a great story, 8 March 2004
Author: shawnmotyka from Baltimore, MD

A thoughtful documentary detailing the careers of a group of Cuban musicians in late 50's- early 60's who became as famous as the Beatles in their home country. The film captures the importance of the group to not only 1950/60's Cuba but also in modern day Cuba where there has been a resurgence of their music. Through the eyes of two former band members, who travel through Cuba to remember their past, we see what affect their music had on both themselves and their country. The focus of the film is the music itself and the old performances of the band are vividly captured. This film is highly recommended to anyone who enjoys good, if unknown, music surrounded by a story of how it came to be.
