Editorial Reviews

Lucumi is ten and lives in Havana's black district. Brought up to the beat of drums, he dreams of becoming a great rumbero. With other kids on his block he improvises rumbas on old cans and pots and pans. One Saturday, the best of Havana's musicians decide to get together at the "Solar California" to honor the memory of Chano Pozo, otherwise known as "the drum of Cuba". With the rumba beat, Lucumi sings, dances, plays, and talks about his life, as if better to express the hardships he's already endured and to have his message heard. On this Saturday, he joins up with the great rumberos and wakes up the old spirits of the tumbadora.

There are eight of them: eight children from every corner of the planet. As different as they are, one thing unites them: music. Their instruments are often unusual because they are rooted in their countries' traditions. The Kids, Music & Dance series invites you to discover the music of these special children and the close relationship they have with their instruments.
