This film, shot all over Spanish Harlem in New York City, explores the musical celebrations of that city's Puerto Rican population. Among the many artists featured are Johnny Pacheco, El Conde, and Ismael Miranda. Izzy Sanabria serves as the emcee and is the artist who made the film's graffiti credits. The main setting for these musical offerings is a nightclub called "Cheetah." Featuring mostly musical performances, this Spanish-language film has English subtitles for the few occasions when a narration is provided. One of the delights of this film is the glimpse it gives into this lively community.
