Storyline

A musical documentary that rummages around in the memories left by the extraordinary composer, lyricist and singer Javier Patricio "Gato" Pérez, while attending the concert of fifteen of his songs, performed by popular voices of the Spanish current musical scene. Memory (document) and legacy (works) coexist in the narration and help to understand Gato and an era: immigration, cultural and idiomatic cross-breeding, sedentary gypsies creators of the Catalan rumba, a yearning for creating around Latin music, the efforts and wear of the anonymous artist... a testimonial on the struggle and willingness to live of an entire generation.

Great Tribute to Gato Perez
2 May 2005 | by flymarcosSee all my reviews

This is the story of El Gato Perez, an Argentinean who left his country and went to Spain, where he settled to do what he loved, rumba. This musical-documentary consists on 15 songs (written by El Gato Perez and performed by different Spanish groups), the history and anecdotes of his life told by his daughters, wives, mother and, above all, his friends. The movie is filled with lot of rhythms from Central and South America and Spain, its a must-see for every lover of these amazing styles of music and, of course, for everyone who's keen on dancing. It gives us a great and unique opportunity to learn a bit about the crazy life of this man who do not deserves forgetfulness.
