Artist: Puente, Tito & Others

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 DVD performance documentary entitled Latin Nights. Celebrating the rich musical traditions and cultures of diverse Latin America countries, this DVD pays tribute to the 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 rehearsals and interviews with influential artists such as Hagood Hardy, we witness the creative process and the musical results, complemented by a behind-the-scenes look at the reality of the daily lives of this unique group of dedicated musicians spanning Latin American countries such as Mexico, Peru, Uruguay, Brazil, Columbia, Argentina, Puerto Rico, and Ecuador. Salsa, Cumbia, Merengue, Jazz, Brazilian Bossa Nova and 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.

 

Award-winning Filmmaker Anthony Azzopordi takes us backstage at the nightclubs, coffee houses and concert halls to show the powerful rhythms and the cool, seductive melodies of the music. Now living in North America, the music and the film showcase the hopes, the politics, and the promise of their new life while struggling to maintain the musical tradition and native cultures of their homelands.
