Synopsis

The Vocal Vidas are an all-female a cappella group from Santiago de Cuba, the cradle of Afro-Cuban music. In 2017, they were invited to perform in the United States for the first time, just as diplomatic relations between the US and Cuba began to close. As they traveled to Los Angeles, playing in restaurants, jazz clubs and preparing for their biggest concert ever – in front of four thousand Angelenos at Downtown LA’s Grand Performances – the journey of the Vocal Vidas came to resemble the story of two cultures, geographically close, yet ideologically disparate, as they begin to reconnect in the face of international uncertainty.
