Synopsis: 

Veterans of Costa Rica’s music scene for close to five decades, the Vargas Brothers have forged their own distinctive sound, one with strong roots in bar room rock, yet accented with extended stints of Latin-jazzy guitar bliss. Los Vargas Brothers is a story of restless creativity—and survival.
