The Other Guantanamo: A Musical Portrait


Cuban rhythms, memories, and traditions come alive in "The Other Guantanamo," a short documentary film exploring Changüí - an Afro-Cuban "roots" music that originated in the early 19th-century sugar cane refineries and rural mountain slave communities. The film takes viewers on a journey through Eastern Cuba's rich musical heritage and community.

Directed & Produced by Salome Chasnoff.
