Probably the last living legend of Cuban music, Compay Segundo has expanded the international popularity of Cuban music for over 70 years with music that is a collage of the world's impression of Cuba, it's music, revolution, rum, women and sunshine. In this superb portrait of the man and his music, Compay Segundo reveals a century of Cuban music and politics. Compay Segundo, this legendary giant of Cuban music in his 90's yet full of vigour and still singing of the "Rum and the Women" and "The Better Life" as he had done in Havana from the 20's to the dawn of the new millennium.
This is the story of his music that Compay Segundo wanted to tell, the gallant promises of a brave new world following the revolution and life in Cuba before and afterwards, all expressed in his music.
