Product Description

Dance to the rhythms, sway to the melodies, and meet Tito Puente, Memo Acevedo and other acclaimed personalities of the Latin music scene in this scintillating DVD performance documentary. Celebrating the rich musical traditions and cultures of diverse Latin America countries, this DVD pays tribute to the accomplished Latin musicians who maintain their cultural identity as they live their individual stories after their Diaspora to Canada.

Through a series of eleven full-length concert performances, as well as rehearsals and interviews with influential artists such as Hagood Hardy, we witness the creative process and the musical results, complemented by a behind-the-scenes look at the reality of the daily lives of this unique group of dedicated musicians spanning Latin American countries such as Mexico, Peru, Uruguay, Brazil, Columbia, Argentina, Puerto Rico, and Ecuador. Salsa, Cumbia, Merengue, Jazz, Brazilian Bossa Nova and Samba, Tango, Canto Nuevo and indigenous folk music (from the depths of the Andean mountains) all shine brightly in this stylishly filmed documentary, covering the spectrum of Latin American music.

Award-winning Filmmaker Anthony Azzopordi takes us backstage at the nightclubs, coffee houses and concert halls to show the powerful rhythms and the cool, seductive melodies of the music. Now living in North America, the music and the film showcase the hopes, the politics, and the promise of their new life while struggling to maintain the musical tradition and native cultures of their homelands.

About the Actor

About the Director... Malta born Anthony Azzopardi graduated from New York University in 1976, receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with honors. He majored in theater and film direction. Thereafter, he formed his own independent production company, Theatre Impressions, where Azzopardi produced and directed productions wherever he could. After deciding that his real interest was film, he signed on to associate-produce Surfacing, a film adaptation of the Margaret Atwood novel. But it wasn't until 3 films later, in 1984, that Azzoparidi's career took off when he produced a documentary style biography about Canadian native, symphony conductor, John Kim Bell.

Besides finally achieving critical success, Azzopardi now found himself on the film map. His works include acclaimed trilogy Making Opera, Making Ballet and Making Theater and Strindberg & His Women.

Format: DVD
don't waste your money on this dvd, this is my second bad experience with v.i.e.w. dvd's the other was airto and flora purmin, it was better but also had bad sound quality,was to short, and boaring except for 5 minutes of flora singing towards the end. I also understand that the louie bellson, and the ron carter, art farmer dvd's arent so great either. These happen to be two other dvds that I might have been interested in. The Latin Nights is very dull, uninspired, poor sound quality, I didn't even make it through one watching, it is that bad, and I am a big fan of Latin music, I bought my dvd at circuit city for $11.99, I think tito puente is put on the cover only as a draw, because he only performed about 2-3 mintues at the very end, and it wasen't very good either. I don't think I will be buying anymore v.i.e.w. dvds. I called circuit city and told them I thought it was a poor dvd, they said, to bad. I called v.i.e.w. and told them it was a poor dvd, after trying to sell me other dvd's and cd's he offered me $10 off on my next purchase at their site, which is still to much because at their site their dvd's are $20 plus shipping

An interesting mix of Latin music in Canada, but I am sure that it could have sought out a few more artists to better round out the profile.
