A Behind the Scenes Look
at Afro-Cuban Jazz


Filmmaker Gary Keys' tribute to Afro-Cuban Jazz.

The film is a behind-the-scenes look at Afro-Cuban music's role in the daily life of Cubans. Filmmaker Gary Keys (Memories of Duke and Dizzy's Dream Band) 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.

"The analytical discussions don't run very deep, but eyes will shine and toes will tap whenever this picture is shown." - David Sterritt, "The Village Voice."
