Just come across this up ‘n’ coming film , ‘The Black Roots Of Salsa: The Emancipation of Rumba’, which is due out in 2012 and set to be shown at AFRO-CUBAN SALSA CONGRESS 2012 : 8TH – 10TH JUNE 2012 in Ireland!
This film is a historical journey into dance and Afro Cuban culture and like the clave itself it seeks to provide a foundation that underpins all the contemporary musical manifestations in Havana from Timba to Rumba. The trailer is smoking. There’s a real energy at work. A lot of energy. Ache!.
‘The Black Roots Of Salsa: The Emancipation of Rumba’ is Real Life production by Christian Leibich, Adonis Panter Calderon and Ismaray Chacon ‘Asparina’. It released via Attic Indendent Production in Switzerland (http://www.atticindependent.ch/)
