Summary:
"Rumba Clave Blen Blen Blen es un canto al género de la rumba en la ciudad de Nueva York. También es un viaje profundo por la cultura afrocubana de esta ciudad. Desentraña los orígenes africanos y andaluces de la rumba. Fluye por sus bailes, sus tambores, su clave, su gente de pueblo como a la vez sus famosos exponentes actuales del género en sus espectáculos. Es un canto poético de color y música a sus cosmogonías simbólicas religiosas: conga, abakuá, yoruba y arará que la han alimentado. Recuerda a sus grandes exponentes como el mítico Chano Pozo y su colaboración con Dizzy Gillespie. Es todo un recorrido por la historia hasta lo actual donde incluye estudiosos, productores, artistas, músicos de renombre, artistas internacionales que se han dedicado al género de la rumba."
"Rumba Clave Blen Blen Blen is a song of praise to the musical genre of rumba in New York City. It reveals the vibrant Afro-Cuban culture of the city. In addition, the film unravels the African and Andalusian origins of rumba and follows ordinary people and famous musicians through the dances, drums, and clave rhythm of the genre. The film is a poem of color and music, bringing to the surface the symbolic religious cosmogonies of Bantu, Abakua, Yoruba and Arara traditions that have nourished it"--Container.
