Ivy League Rumba


IVY LEAGUE RUMBA is a one-hour documentary showcasing today's Latin rhythms, which fuse temporary grooves with the power of traditionally rooted sounds. Filmed at the 2015 Brown University Latin Jazz and Pop Festival in Providence, R.I., the program captures the magical spontaneity of some of Latin music's top performers and explores the Latino influence on mainstream American music and world culture. The documentary, narrated by renowned Afro-Cuban music historian Emilio San Pedro, highlights the vital musical exchanges between Cuba and the United States that have been blurring cultural lines for the past century, and emphasizes the newly intensified political and artistic rapprochement between the two countries.
