Best MODERN Cuban music DVD yet!

"I bought this DVD, not for the fame of Pio Leiva, but for the powerhouse musicianship behind him. Included in the roster are talents like Mayito Rivera (in my opinion, the most dynamic salsa singer in Cuba), Feliciano Arango (the legendary bass player of Cuba's NG La Banda, and often called "father of Timba-Salsa bass playing"), and Los Van Van's top drummer, Samuel Formell (recognized as one of the best drummers of the island). While I do not know the names of the rest of the crew, I can assure the musicianship represents Cuba's best. The video quality is very good and the sound is clear for all instruments. Definitely an improvement over other "Cuba DVDs" who are bootleg VHS copies inside DVDs.
If there ever was a DVD that made me bob my head and smile in delight, this is the one. What a treat!"
