"Musica Cubana - a story to be told"
Worldpremiere in preparation
Cuba is full of very different musics.
Music here in Cuba is omnipresent and comes along every step you go –
especially Havana is a boiling caldera of musical and rythmical creativity.
The enourmeous manifold of music you meet here
is fed by tradition and currentness and seems to be beyond occidental categories.
Beaches, sun, salsa, oldtimers, cigars and Bueana Vista – that´s the stereotype which first appears to the non-cuban. But this wouldn´t embrace Cuba likewise cowboy and chewing gum wouldn´t embrace the United States. La Havana has something of 2 million people living there. But she produces musicians of world-ranking level like a continent !
Cuba is much more than Buena Vista und Salsa ! Cuba is much more than sun and beaches !
„Music in the blood“ – the manifold of the musical Cuba is unique – worldwide.
It is a melting pot of highly varying influences coming along from own history, tradition and a very fast synthesis of up to the day available influences. Our film features cuban musicians telling about their music and their musical view and their thoughts. It will give a subjective first-hand view without any doctrinaire indexing. The shootings will be done with our cuban and our german filmteam. Filmlanguage is cuban spanish with german (english) voice over. The project is privately financed and 100% independent. All rights remain 100% by the producer LAUTRAZfilm.
