Viva Cuba Libre: Rap is War!

Viva Cuba Libre: Rap is War!

Los Andelenos (The Villagers) are an electrifying rap duo sweeping the Cuban underground with their urgent lyrics about the economic and political state of their beloved country. Heralded as the voices of the lost generation, El B and his partner Aldo are banned from performing in official venues, and distribute their music by hand, in total secrecy for fear of government reprisal. Shot in true guerilla style with hidden cameras, this powerful and provocative documentary takes viewers inside a new revolution brewing in Cuba.
