• Short Summary

    John Stein and his Rumba Band play 'El Castanero' in the studio.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'From Mexico and South America came the Rumba soon to become a new vogue in dance rhythm in Europe. To-day [sic] PATHE PICTORIAL presents JOHN STEIN AND HIS RUMBA BAND in "El Castanero"'.

    Pathe Studio, London.

    Various shots of John Stein and his Rumba Band, all clad in flouncy satin shirts and cummerbunds, playing 'El Castanero'. John Stein conducts the band and plays a solo on the grand piano (he doesn't look very Latin American).

    Unfortunately, visuals cut out at 01:42:30, just as the violinists get up to dance; sound continues to end.
