SYNOPSIS 

Following the rumba group Los Muñequitos de Matanzas on tour in Cuba, Mirabal and band members unveil the history of this 60-year-old group of pioneering musicians who helped cultivate the genre of rumba and its presence in Cuban popular culture. 

 

Musicians, specialists and fans, both Cuban and international, contribute to enrich the legend that little by little has come to surround the group since its birth in the humble neighborhood of La Marina, Matanzas.
