A charming account of some elderly Cuban musicians whose talents had been virtually forgotten following Castro's takeover of Cuba. Ry Cooder brought the musicians out of retirement, resulting in triumphant performances of extraordinary music, and resurrecting their careers. Their love of life and music is heart warming.
