Benny More: Hoy Como Ayer

Nicknamed "El Barbaro del Ritmo", Benny More had an overwhelmingly striking and charismatic personality. Though he never received musical training, he was a wonderful singer and composer, and arguably the most well rounded artist in a country known for producing outstanding musicians.

Directed by Ilena Rodriguez - and with musical supervision by Maria Elana Mendiola - this DVD tells the story of the most legendary figure in Cuban popular music of all times. From his humble origins as a farmer, to his debut in the Matamoros group, to his sojourn in Mexico, More's legacy can be felt as strongly today - 40 years after his death - as ever before.

He developed a unique style of singing rumba, boleros, guaracha, mambo and guaguanco.

Featuring: Enrique Benitez ("El conde negro"), Walfrido Guevara, Jose Reyes, Augusto Enriquez, Ibrahim Ferrer, Eliades Ochoa, Hilda More, Jose Castaneda, Miguel Patterson, Fernando Alvarex, Isaac Delgado...

Includes Live Performances of "Oh Vida", "Santa Isabel de las Lajas", "Como fue", "Batanga No. 2", "Que te have pensar", "Hoy como aye", "Mata Siguraya", "Te quedaras", "Saoco", "Preferi perderte", "Como arrvio de palma", "Que bueno baila usted", "La vida es un sueno", "Mexicanita veracruzana", "Bonito y sabroso"...
