  • Oh grammy, oh grammy grammy blue...

A documantary based on a group of legendary Cuban musicians. In 1996 Ry Cooder brought together a group of forgotten musicians and singers to record an album that won a Grammy Award.

Visitor Comments
Ian Douglas: You will either find this documentary fascinating or boring. I left after half an hour due to boredom, another reviewer fell asleep twice. Others found it excellent. I guess it depends on your love for Cuban jazz...
