Synopsis by Perry Seibert

The famous Rumble in the Jungle between Muhammed Ali and George Foreman consisted of more than just the fight. A music festival was held before the famous bout. Many of the performances were captured by documentary filmmaker Leon Gast, whose film about the event When We Were Kings won the Oscar for Best Documentary. This concert film features footage of the legendary Celia Cruz performing at that event along with such celebrated musicians as Ray Barretto, Larry Harlow, Nicky Marrero, and many others.
