Rumberos (Documental sobre Rumba Cubana)

This documentary on the Rumba, shot in Havana, Cuba, is in Spanish. In addition to discussing the history of the Rumba, the film provides examples of the three main rhythms that comprise the Rumba family: Yambu, Guaguancó, and Columbia.

The documentary features a few scenes shot during the weekly (Sunday) Rumbas in Callejon de Hamel, one of my favorite spots in Havana.
