A movie on the "Emancipation of Cuban Rumba" and a documentary about Afro-Cuban culture. How it started; how it is conserved and how it is lived today. A historical journey into dancing and music of the Afro-Cuban culture. This documentary unwinds the complexity of many traditional and cultural movements in Cuba for the viewer. The deeply rooted approach to the life of the descendants of historically displaced African slaves is expressed in the Cuban Rumba. The traditions are carried on through the generations. It shows the personal side of the artists in their cultural work. It also discovers the Afro-Cuban religions as performances and manifests their influence into one of the most progressive movements in today's music and dance performance. Without the rhythmic pattern, called 'Clave', originating in the Abakua tradition, the world-known 'Salsa' would not exist. Actors include: Adonis Panter Calerón, Jennyselt Galata Calvo, Geovani del Pino y Yoruba Andabo and Michael Herrera Perez.
