Los Zafiros: Music from the Edge of Time

2007 NR

In this documentary, Manuel Galbán and Miguel Cancio -- the two surviving members of the world music group Los Zafiros -- reunite in Havana to recount their glory days with one of Cuba's most internationally acclaimed bands. Formed in post-revolutionary Cuba in the 1960s, Los Zafiros (The Sapphires) blended rhythms of doo-wop, salsa and son with Afro-Cuban beats to create a sound that was as infectious as it was influential.
