Cuban pianist Bebo Valdés and flamenco singer Diego "El Cigala" caused a revolution with 2003's "Lágrimas Negras," a best-selling album that fused Cuban son with flamenco vocals. This double-DVD set is as tasteful, understated and exquisite as that recording. But the DVD—which includes a full concert, shot in black and white—benefits from having Academy Award-winning film director Fernando Trueba as producer. Lovers of "Lágrimas" will delight in seeing Bebo and Cigala in this intimate, acoustic performance, which expands the original set list and whose colors hark to the pureness of the music. Even more enjoyable is disc two, a making-of feature that forgos flash for insightful substance about these artists and their music.—LC
