Yunio_Terry_y_Son_website_format0Kicking off the 15th Annual Havana Film Festival New York, The Bronx Museum will host a screening of Los 100 sones de Cuba/The 100 Cuban Sones, followed by a special performance by Yunior Terry y Son de Altura. Music by DJ Asho.

Winner of a Latin Grammy, Los 100 sones de Cuba/The 100 Cuban Sones follows the popularity and dissemination of the son musical tradition throughout Cuba. Using academic experts and man-on-the-street interviews, the film traces the familial and regional roots of this song style around the country and beyond. How has such a region-specific style defied borders? As one musician states with pride and happiness: “It’s very authentic, and therefore it has been internationalized.” Directed by Edesio Alejandro and Rubén Consuegra.
