* Havana, Cuba, during the 1940s and 50s, was one of the most vibrant, thriving and cosmopolitan cities in the Americas, and the dance music capital of the world.
* Following the Cuban Revolution, and subsequent US embargo, the country and its musicians survived in isolation until 1996 when the young Cuban bandleader Juan de Marcos Gonzalez gathered together some of the greatest Cuban musicians of the last fifty years, to create the Afro-Cuban All-Stars.
* The "golden age" of Cuban music came out of retirement, to huge international acclaim.
* This documentary, shot entirely on location in Havana, includes many band members' fascinating insights into this revival, and features performance footage of an All-Stars' concert at the city's Salon of Dreams.
* Starring: JUAN DE MARCOS GONZALEZ, IBRAHIM FERRER, RUBeN GONZALEZ, PIO LEYVA
