Synopsis

Documentary focusing on the relationship between American music star Ry Cooder and a veteran group of Cuban musicians. Cooder worked to reunite as many of Havana's old guard as possible, first for the hugely successful Buena Vista Social Club album, and then for another record and shows in Havana, New York and Amsterdam. Here band members are interviewed, including the 90 year old guitarist Compay Segundo and the Cuban Nat King Cole, Ibrahim Ferrer.
