Movie Reviews

A must have for folks who love Cuba!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Cuban Hiphop Allstars documents the Cuban Hiphop movement in its infancy, 200-2001. Most of the artists featured are on the first Cuban Hiphop compilation, with the same name; Obsesion, Anonimo Consejo, Explosion Suprema, Instincto, 100% Original, Pablo Herrera, Hermanos de Causa... as well as some great new talents, Papo Record, and Cuba's first straight up R&B girl group Sexto Sentido. Alafia uses interviews, cyphers, live footage and little viniettes where the rappers act out little scenes from there music to paint a colorful picture of this extremely vibrant, explosive movement in Havana. The piece has a real cinema verite feel and the music is great. I really enjoyed it. The extra scenes are interesting too, some live footage and more cyphers, including a beautiful scene where the rappers rap with drummers playing rumba and dancing in the street... EPIC CUBA!!!"
