Documentary. Take a documentary musical journey in search of the soul of Afro-Cuban music. From the communist friendships of the Cold War to today, from Havana to Bamako, we follow in the footsteps of ten young Malian musicians in musical training in Cuba, who became a founding group of world music: the legendary Maravillas of Mali. Fifty years later, this forgotten group is resurrected thanks to Maestro Boncana Maïga, its historical conductor.


Directors: Richard Minier & Edouard Salier
