Synopsis:
Steeped in the colours and culture of Puerto Rico and swept away in the rhythms of Salsa, El Cantante celebrates the life of the legendary singer hector Lavoe, exploring the tempestuous relationship with those closest to him and his rapid descent into the murky world of drug abuse. Directed by Leon Ichaso, this beautifully shot film was a labour of love for its two stars, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, both New Yorkers of proud Puerto Rican descent and both heavily influenced by the contagious Salsa beat.
El Cantante uses Hector Lavoe’s music and life story to colourfully portray the era of national identity and pride that redefined Latin music in the 1960s and 1970s, taking root in Puerto Rican communities across the U.S.
