Sex, Maracas & Chihuahuas

Trailer for the documentary Sex, Maracas & Chihuahuas.

This joyous documentary profile from director Diego Mas Trelles chronicles the colorful life of Xavier Cugat (1900-1990), the Spanish-born, Cuban-bred “Rhumba King” who was instrumental in bringing Latin music to American ears—and dancing feet.

Featuring extracts from Cugat’s numerous Hollywood screen appearances while paying tribute to his years of work in radio and in countless casinos, hotel ballrooms and nightclubs—including the legendary Coconut Grove—Sex, Maracas and Chihuahuas tells an incredible story of hard work and wild times, of romance, gangsters and opulence, and of glorious, infectious, beautiful music.Sex, Maracas & Chihuahuas Trailer (2017) Screen CaptureTrailer Addict has setup TA, Trailers Anonymous.
