Esoooo! Again, I will always love my city becuz of these gems. And yes, I repeat, #ourstoriesmatter . #nerdygirldiaries
For my #NYC peeps & music lovers alike, (and no, I don't mean mainstream top40 radio) y'all gotta go check this one out. " #Bakosó " is a visual/sonic love letter to an amalgamation of rhythmic sounds. Doc is directed by the young, budding talent @fistuptv. Film is slated to debut stateside in New York City on Sept. 21 at the 23rd annual #UrbanworldFestival . A screening will be held at the #AMCTheater in #TimesSquare . .
"The 50-minute documentary, directed by #PuertoRican filmmaker #EliJacobsFantauzzi , follows DJ Jigüe as he treks from the “most Caribbean city of #Cuba ” to its various provinces such as Palma Soriano, to reconnect the #AfroCaribbean infusion with its diasporic roots."
"As the Havana-based DJ untangles the rise of bakosó, which was birthed in the streets of Cuba’s capital, the film spotlights the younger generation of tastemakers leading the new wave of Cuba’s sound. The cultural movement began in the mid-2000s when a group of African medical students, abroad for their exchange program, brought the high-jacked rhythmic intonations of Afropop and Angolan kuduro to the shores of this Caribbean nation. Much like how hip-hop evolved because of new technological advances that enabled beat-making, it’s this cultural transmittance between the two entities that has slowly revolutionized Cuba’s nascent music scene."
"Not to be confused with Afrobeat or Trinidadian-founded soca, the Afro-Caribbean infusion is entrenched in Cuban cultural practices and traditions. Bakosó (which essentially means “turn up”) is its own unique sound separate from other diasporic sounds."
