The Vinyl Gentleman

Micro Documentary / 2022 / 05:00


El Don de los Vinilos is a brief portrait of a character named Otilio Soto, born in Baní, who at the age of 15 decided to move to Santo Domingo due to his fascination for the music scene. Life took him to Mella Avenue, where he has spent more than 25 years preserving an important part of local and international musical history.
