Old Man Bebo




Musical giant Bebo Valdés (1918) is one of the the last survivors of the Golden Age of Cuban music of the 40’s and 50’s. After the triumph of the Cuban Revolution, Valdes goes into exile and lives in oblivion for four decades earning his living in Sweden's hotel piano bars. But starting in the year 2000, Bebo Valdés makes a spectacular return to the scene, winning six Grammy awards for his latest works. Over 7 years in the making and shot in Cuba, Spain, the U.S., and Sweden, OLD MAN BEBO is the chronicle of the lives and times of Bebo Valdés.
