In Cuba, the band played shows to crowds of 10 people; the band played shows to crowds of 5,000 people. Some shows involved horse and cart to get the gear to a venue; some shows the band rode in brand new tour buses. The tour really encompassed a wide spectrum, on every level. The best part was that it also was something no band from outside Cuba had ever experienced before, and it all got captured on film for posterity.
