Synopsis

In a remote barrio of Havana, the Salon Rosado at La Tropical is the club where generations of working-class Cuban's of color have always gathered to dance, sing, and live la vida loco. From midnight to dawn, hundreds of men and women, young and old, pack the open-air dance floor and move as one to the nonstop rythems of the hottest bands on the island. La Tropical, produced and directed by David Turnley, a Pulitzer-prize-winning photojournalist, takes viewers on an edgy behind-the-scenes tour of this extrordinary club.
