A close and personal look into religious and popular musical styles in Havana Centro as well as dance and scenes of everyday life. Havana Centro is a rare documentary film that takes you to a place that is off limits for Americans and seldom seen by outsiders. Cuban music is known worldwide, but its roots in the faith of Santeria are seldom seen , heard, or understood. Meet the musicians and Santeros who speak to their Gods through music and sacrifice, and see the lives of these vibrant, beautiful people up close, in vivid living color.
