The film opens with Benicio del Toro describing Eliades Ochoa as the Cuban Johnny Cash, and it is true that Ochoa is just as dedicated to his music and his working-class roots. But the former Buena Vista Social Club guitarist’s music is more exuberant, colourful and a whole lot sexier, and this documentary showcases it in all its glory – and the shining soul of the man behind it.“For me, the guitar doesn’t have a secret. In the guitar, you will find everything,” he says, and we watch, and listen, as he shares everything he has found. Eliades has spread the folk roots of Cuban music around the world and helped keep the Cuban son genre alive. Cynthia Biestek‘s film traces his journey from a humble farmer’s son to an award-winning star, to a contemplative elder.
