“too much of a cuban to live in new york, too much of a new yorker to live in havana”
grammy nominated cuban/new yorker cucu diamantes celebrates the release of amor cronico's film soundtrack with a very special live performance following the screening for the havana new york film festival.
cucú diamantes returns to her homeland in cuba to perform her songs while becoming the first touring artist from outside the country in over 50 years. along the way she realizes that she is “too much of a cuban to live in new york, too much of a new yorker to live in havana”. this paradox, along with a new-found romance, sets her semi-fictional lead character on a whirlwind tour through the cuban heartland. cuban filmmaker jorge perugorría mixes live concert footage with an over-the-top fiction smorgasbord to create a love story and a road movie with a flashy musical twist.
