Benny Moré straddled mambo, son, cha-cha-cha, and Afro-Cuban jazz, becoming one of Cuba’s most popular vocalists ever. He is the subject of "El Benny", a dynamic, musically rich tribute that follows the conventions of most music biography films—Moré scuffles early in his career, before he gets a few breaks and becomes a star. However, his self-destructive behavior (drink in Moré’s case) threatens to derail his career, as he hurts those he loves the most. In spite of Moré’s escapades, he remains true to his music, lovingly recreated here by some of Cuba’s finest musicians, including the great Chucho Valdés.
