Amazingly talented, incredibly beautiful, and Cuban to the core, these amazing musicians demonstrate the power of music to cross the boundaries of nations, gender, and time. Whether performing in their stunning Basilica in Old Havana or captured live on this album, Camerata Romeu: Cuba Mia (Soundtrack), these astoundingly gifted women perform with a joy and energy that has made them renowned to both lovers of Classical music and fans of fellow Cuban musicians such as the Buena Vista Social Club.
