Portraits of Cuban musicians and daily life of Havana.
Cristina Piza lived in Havana in the early and mid-nineties. In search of the origins of Rumba she inevitably found the musicians of the Buena Vista Social Club, even before Wim Wenders helped them to international fame. In addition to the impressive black-and-white portraits of the Rumberos, amongthem Ibrahim Ferrer, Omara Portuondo, Rubén González, the young Cristina Piza draws a romantic image of Havana. Despite poverty and decay, you can feel hope and passion in her work.
