Animals of Cuban Music documentary looks at Cuban Reggaeton and government restrictions in Cuba

I found this if people want more info on the subject:

Animals of Cuban Music / Animales de la Música Cubana is a documentary about Cuban reggaeton and the relationship of reguetoneros cubanos to the government. Starring Gente de Zona, Baby Lores, Charanga Habanera.

Here is a description from Amazon:
ANIMALS OF CUBAN MUSIC takes us inside a thriving music scene in Cuba to explore tensions between defenders of Reggaeton and Cuban Salsa who share their thoughts between live performances.

The mass reggaeton youth movement has managed to unhinge the authorities whose attempts at control simply fuel the phenomenon. Meanwhile, salsa musicians have had to chase collaborations with these new street superstars to stay on-trend. In turn, they've helped them overcome government restrictions on the genre by fusing salsa and reggaeton into an explosive rhythm cocktail no dancer can resist.

Featuring: Gente de Zona, Charanga Habanera, Baby Lores, El Chacal, Bamboleo, Manolito Simonet Y Su Trabuco, Yulien Oviedo, Insurrecto, El Micha. Cameos and interviews: Los Van Van, Mayito Rivera, Roberton, Los Intocables, Mandy Cantero, RDR, Team Cuba, Paulito FG, Jose Luis Cortes


Run time: 70 minutes - Widescreen
