The best of music documentary festival In-Edit goes on tour and is coming to the Melkweg this afternoon! This film is about Latin American icon Ruben Blades, who was at the center of the New York Salsa revolution in the 1970's. His socially charged lyrics and explosive rhythms brought Salsa music to an international audience. Blades has won multiple Grammys, acted in Hollywood, earned a law degree from Harvard and even run for President of his native Panama. The film makers take us on a journey through Ruben's 50 year career, revealing that Ruben might still have both musical and political ambitions. This is a film about a living legend and his struggle to come to terms with his legacy.
Afterwards there is a concert in the Max of Cuba's numero uno salsa and timba orchestra Alexander Abreu & Havana d'Primera. Visitors of this concert get a discount for the film.
