A mythical island lying at the entrance to the Gulf of Mexico. Cuba has always exercised a powerful fascination and occupied a special place in people's mind, quite distinct from that of any other tropical island.
Turned upside down by history, a wealth of legends has grown up here, while successive generations of emigrants have taken with them their own music and gods.
Here Havana reveals part of its inner essence, sensual and nonchalant but also mysterious and profound.
Attitudes and glances give a glimpse into the everyday lives of the island people who, in their geographical isolation, have created a way of life imbued with tremendous generosity and feeling.
