Original Title • Santos – Skin to Skin

One of the world’s foremost exponents of Afro-Latin music, Santos, through his mixed Puerto Rican and Cape Verdean heritage, strives to unite and expand his kaleidoscopic audience. Kathryn Golden follows Santos from rehearsals in his garage studio in Oakland, California, to performances at local community centers, gigs with congueros in Peñuelas, San Germán and Guánica, Puerto Rico, and concert stages around the United States. Rich in unforgettable musical performances, the documentary captures Santos playing alongside a stellar cast of international jazz musicians, including Eddie Palmieri, Omar Sosa, and Jerry Medina.
