Dance to the rhythms...sway to the melodies...and meet Tito Puente, Memo Acevedo and other acclaimed personalities of the Latin music scene in this scintillating performance documentary, Latin Nights. Latin Nights takes you into the nightclubs, coffee houses and performances halls to show the powerful rhythms and the cool, seductive melodies of the music. Salsa, Cumbia, Merengue, Jazz, Brazilian Jazz, Samba, Tango, Canto Nuevo and indigenous folk music (from the depths of the Andean mountains) all shine brightly in this stylishly filmed documentary, covering the spectrum of Latin American music. Celebrating the rich musical tradition and culture of Latin America, Latin Nights pays tribute to accomplished Latin musicians who maintain their cultural identity as they live their individual stories after their Diaspora to Canada. Through a series of eleven full-length concert performances, as well as interviews and rehearsals, we witness the creative process and the musical results, complemented by a behind-the-scenes look at the reality of the lives of this unique group of dedicated musicians. Arkadia Entertainment is proud to add this enhanced DVD, Latin Nights, to their award-winning DVD collection. The music and the film showcase the hopes, the politics and the promise of a new life while maintaining the musical tradition, heritage and values of the musicians and their native lands thousands of miles away.
