Fito's Havana

In 1987, Argentine musician Fito Páez visited Cuba for the first time, invited by Pablo Milanés. His presence at a music festival shook the island, to which he'd return many times; he'd also drink from their tropical sounds. Sitting at the terrace of a traditional hotel in Havana, Fito sums up his story with Cuba, its musicians, its people and also its contradictions.
