Description
Information
In 1949 two young Cuban musicians, brothers Cesar and Nestor, leave Havana for New York. By day they work hard, by night they are the Mambo Kings: packing out clubs, dance halls and theatres with their sensuous, pulsing Latin music. This is the captivating story of charming, vivacious womanizer Cesar and quiet, romantic Nestor - still nursing an unrequited love for 'beautiful Maria of my soul' - and their changing fortunes as they try to make it big in America. Evoking a world of smoky clubs, steamy nights, sharp suits and stiletto heels, it is a joyous yet ultimately poignant hymn to love, family, community and the life-enhancing power of music.
