Orquesta Chepín - Descarga

This DVD contains four documentaries by anthropologist Bartolomé Duijsen on the musical cultures of Cuba and about the passion with which Cubans live their music. With musical styles ranging from charanga to reggaetón, these documentaries show that Cuba still produces the most beatiful melodies and dance music.
Hasta Siempre Compay! A musical journey through Cuba' is like a whirlwind tour of Cuba, from Havana to Santiago, passing through Matanzas and San Luis. On the way we meet famous bands like Orquesta Chepín Chóven, Vocal Sampling and Orquesta Sensación as well as many bands unknown to the outside world.
'Contramaestre - The music of a Cuban country town' concentrates on the surprisingly brilliant musical culture of this dusty and forlorn provincial town. It gives an intimate view of the vivid local music scene and of the way in which these bands - from charanga orchestras to rap crews - manage to practice their art.
'Contramaestre, one year later' is a kind of an epilogue to the previous documentary. It shows the response of the musicians to the international release of the cd they recorded the year before.
In the short documentary 'Saludo Compay!' we visit the grave of Compay Segundo in Santiago de Cuba and bring a homage to this great trovador who came to world fame through the Buena Vista Social Club.
