Dvd - Como Se Forma Una Rumba




Product Description

DVD REVIEW From All Movie Guide: Writer-director-producer Ivan Acosta helms the original documentary How to Create a Rumba (Como se forma una rumba). This seventy-three minute film cuts between insightful, occasionally humorous interviews with musicians who discuss the relevance of the rumba dance to Cuban culture and society, and Afro-Cuban "jam sessions" that bring the sound to sizzling life. The film boasts an all-star lineup of over twenty rumba luminaries, including Juan Pablo Torres, Israel Kantor, Carlos y Marta, Armando Lopez, Art Farmer and Raices Habaneras. An excellent companion piece to Acosta's Grammy-nominated Fifty Years of Mambo in the USA. ~ Nathan Southern, All Movie Guide
