<p> <strong>The origins of the project:</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> Aldo Medina Caballero travels across Cuba visiting the birthplace of the Cuban son and meeting the people who made it.  In this documentary, full of changüi, pilon, conga de carnaval or salsa rhythms, he tells the history of Cuban music. He tells also about his music, his hometown and his native country.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Captura_de_pantalla_2014-02-10_a_la_s__12.14.11-1413472258" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/128805/Captura_de_pantalla_2014-02-10_a_la_s__12.14.11-1413472258.png"></p> <p> <em>Interview Calderin Bass.</em></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> Everybody knows Salsa, but very few people know that the Cuban sound was born in Santiago de Cuba.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Aldo_camaras-1413542115" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/129024/aldo_camaras-1413542115.jpg"></p> <p> Alexi 's and Franck, both documentary cameraman</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> In April 2010, Aldo Medina Caballero flew back to Santiago with a project: to make a movie about the creation of the «Real Orquesta Cuba», a band comprised of important musicians all coming from the eastern part of Cuba.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Img_5240-1413542157" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/129025/IMG_5240-1413542157.png"></p> <p> <em>The R.O.C. , Real Orchesta Cuba.</em></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Captura_de_pantalla_2014-02-10_a_la_s__12.08.35-1413472384" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/128808/Captura_de_pantalla_2014-02-10_a_la_s__12.08.35-1413472384.png"></p> <p> <i>Nancy Maura</i></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Img_5371-1413542176" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/129026/IMG_5371-1413542176.JPG"></p> <p> <em>During rehearsals</em></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Going back to his roots</strong> gave Aldo the opportunity to tell us about his hometown, about the importance of music and dance in the Cuban society.
