Good Music in a Great Location
2 May 2007 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I watched MUSICA CUBANA in a little neighborhood cinema and really liked what I discovered. Unfortunately, the marketing people tried to push this film to be something else (Buena Vista Social Club II), which can spoil many peoples expectations. When you watch this film, you get a very interesting insight into today's music scene in Havanna, you meet a fascinating group of young artists, who stand between their traditional music roots and the influx of modern western styles. Their music is as diverse as their love for artistic expression and stage performance, powerful and passionate. It takes an icon of Havanna's old music scene, the great singer Pio Leiva, to get the artists together and help them form a common musical expression. And I realized, the most exciting aspect of this film is that the new voice of Cuba has many voices.
