Chico & Rita is a story about the great love between Chico, a talented pianist, and Rita, a woman endowed with a great voice. Their story starts in 1948, in Cuba, but fate takes the lovers to New York, Paris, and even Hollywood. The characters depicted in this real-life story have been attracted to each other by passion and music, the latter of which plays a significant role in the film. This excellent soundtrack features jazz, cubop, mambo and samba... This music provides the rhythm to the passionate affection. Love is a song you shall never forget...
