buenas vistas de cuba  1999

Cuba presents the concentrated joy of life that finds its expression in music and dance. In Havanna sounds fill the air. The national rhythm Son reflects the Cuban soul. It is musica mulatta, the fusion of Europe and Africa, and a musical synthesis of the history of Cuba. The melancholy that seems to wrap everything like a transparent web, radiates the attraction and the beauty of transitoriness as the Queen of the Antilles steps up towards an uncertain future.
