En los reyes del son sus personajes nos acercan la actualidad de un género que ha marcado la vida de los cubanos por muchos décadas. Asentados en Santiago de Cuba, la cuna del son, ellos nos muestran en qué consiste su reinado y cuan mágica es la música que cultivan. Reinaldo Creagh, 89 años, Roberto Nápoles, 96 (el músico activo más viejo de cuba) y una generación heredera representada por Fernando Dewar y el Septeto Santiaguero, nos hacen participes de su día a día. Así la ciudad también se convierte en protagonista a través de la musicalidad de sus habitantes y en especial de sus pregoneros.
