If you're interested in a sociological and political discussion about life in Puerto Rico and the Nuyorican community, you may find this short program interesting. If you're looking for concert footage or MUSICAL discussion of Salsa, you'll find very little of the first and NONE of the second in this 60-minute DVD.
