In this Billboard exclusive video filmed in March, photographer/videographer Edel Rodríguez* goes behind the scenes at some of the city's musical hot spots (some of them on the street), and talks to a few of the many leaders in the big world of Cuban music. Trumpeter/bandleader Alexander Abreu of Havana D'Primera, Samuel Formell of Los Van Van and other artists discuss the challenges of Cuban artists getting their music out to the rest of the world and their hope for the future.
