Chico & Rita

New animated movie "Chico & Rita"

"Havana 1948. Chico is a young Cuban pianist who dreams of making a place for himself in the jazz world. Rita is a singer with an extraordinary voice which captivates everyone. Music brings them together and they embark on a passionate and tormented love affair. With a soundtrack of latin jazz as background to their love story, we´re immersed in the world of Cuban passion, sensuality and music.

Afro-Cuban Music and Jazz, a mixture concocted in heaven by the deities, is right at the center of the plot of Chico & Rita.

Music plays a massive part here and jazz fans will delight in the name-checking Thelonius Monk, Cole Porter, Dizzy Gillespie, Tito Puente and Charlie Parker, who also appear on its soundtrack."
