Freedom Now: Justo Valdez & La Rumba Palenquera: Tribute to Batata

2009 Rated NR 45m

This spirited concert film features an intimate and infectious performance of African- and Latin-flavored batata music, a vivacious blend of smooth, jazzy brass and complex rhythms drawn from cumbia, champeta and porro musical stylings. Filmed at Paris's renowned Banlieues Bleues Festival, the program also includes an interview with Lucas Silva, aka Champeta Man Original, who offers an insider's perspective into this unique musical style.
