Revivals of Blackness

February 15 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am PST

Presenters: Lela Aisha Jones, Alex Shaw, Aidan Un

Come watch the riveting feature film “Revivals of Blackness” which explores the diverse African diasporic music and dance traditions, bringing American jazz, R&B, gospel, and soul into informed cultural dialogue with Capoeira Angola, Afro-Cuban rumba, Afro-Brazilian samba & maracatu, Ewe drumming, and orisha songs from Yorubaland. After the film, we will speak with art choreographer/movement artist/vocalist Lela Aisha Jones, pianist/composer Luke Carlos O’Reilly, percussionist/composer/vocalist Alex Shaw, and filmmaker Aidan Un about their revolutionary work.
