Interesting moments but you will not learn "how to make a ru
L. Alessandroni | San Francisco, CA | 08/01/2007
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD is a misleading mess. Without ever analyzing what rumba is or addressing the three types (guaguancó, columbia and yambú)the DVD covers in no particular order and without reasonable transitions: abakuá, son, trova, bolero, the "tres", the flute, changuí, latin jazz, mambo, charanga,descarga and much more. The production values are very poor all the way. If you are already well-versed in Cuban music you may find some of the commentary interesting and enjoy some of the archival footage of people like Benny Moré. For the most part there are lots of more coherent videos out there so don't waste your money on this one."
