Al son del mambo
(Al son del mambo)

by Chano URUETA

Resortes, a famous Mexican dancer and cabaret owner; escapes to Cuba to free himself from a smothering fame. He is followed by two private detectives who deprive him of his freedom. In Cuba, he finds that they have been hired by his own cabaret; he fires them. However, he invites them to join the friends he made on the island. He later meets beautiful women, including a pretty American girl who invites them at some friends’ place in the countryside. There, they witness the birth of a new rhythm – mambo. Damaso Pérez Prado and a group of musicians have just found an extraordinary rhythm that sets the world dancing.
