Documentaire: Indestructible, el alma de salsa 2017
Director: Javier Pareja
This beautifully bewitching musical odyssey takes us from Madrid to various places all over the Americas in search of the sundry sources of that divine tradition we call salsa. This musical documentary follows Spanish flamenco singer Diego “El Cigala” as he embarks on a journey to make a salsa record. With stops in Cali, Havana, Punta Cana, San Juan, Miami and New York, INDESTRUCTIBLE is a musical tour-de-force, enlisting the likes of Omara Portuondo, Larry Harlow and the Fania All-Stars as our guides. Their stories are endlessly fascinating, but the backbone of this documentary voyage is the music itself, played in studios, on stages and in the streets by El Cigala and some of the world’s finest practitioners.
