It is 1947, and Israel Levis, a Cuban composer whose life had once been
a dream of music, love, and sadness, returns to Cuba after being mistakenly
imprisoned during the Nazi occupation of France.
When Levis arrives back in Habana, his mind returns to an unrequited
romance with the alluring Rita Valladares, a singer for whom Levis had
written his most famous song, "Rosas Puras." This 1928 composition became
the most famous rumba in the world and changed American and European tastes
in music and dance forever.
A love story - of art, family, and country - A Simple Habana Melody
is a virtuoso performance from one of our most important writers.
