"This is a spectacular look at the resiliance, creativity and talent of the Cuban people. A country rich in culture is blessed with superior musical educational opportunity..... without class, color or gender bias. The director, the artists and the conductor give a realistic portrayal of Cuban life and the music skills combine to enrich the experience. A complete treat visually. One weeps with joy at the beauty of the group and the musical interpretations. Exceptional!"

"There is about seven minutes of music, the rest is devoted to the lives and doings of ten music ladies and their families. I spent over one hour waiting for a concert that never happened."
Refreshing, culturally and Spiritually soothing

"For those who appreciate culture and classical music and yearn for a refreshing new performance, this DVD is worth owning, watching and sharing for years to come. Unfortunately, AMAZON's description of "actors" is wrong. Celia Cruz and others cited are not in the film. This award winning documentary/film is an enjoyable expression of a group of women who live in Cuba and play deligthfully well and cohesively. The Romeu Camarata provides us with an excellent example of the art of music and specifically, Cuban classical music. With very limited resources, the performers share their passion and devotion. I hope others will enjoy it as much as I have."
