THE BLACK ROOTS OF SALSA

THE EMANCIPATION OF CUBAN RUMBA

2004-2013

The Black Roots of Salsa

Documentary film projekt about the origin and evolution of todays world famous Salsa.

 

The documentary is a historical journey into dancing and music of the Afro-Cuban culture.

This documentary unwinds the complexity of many traditional and cultural movements in Cuba. The deeply rooted approach to the life of the descendants of historically deported African slaves is expressed in the Cuban ‚Rumba‘.

The traditions are carried on through the generations, and it is shown how they evolve and how they are conserved.

Showing the personality of each of the artists in their cultural work, the documentary discovers the Afro-Cuban religions as performances and manifests their influence on one of the most progressive movements of today‘s music and dance performance.

Without the rhythmic pattern, called ‚Clave‘, originating in the ‚Abakua‘ tradition, the world-known ‚Salsa‘ would not exist.

ADONIS Y OSAIN DEL MONTE

Starting 2013

Adonis y Osain del MonteLogo Adonis y Osain del Monte

Adonis is challenging the Rumba movment in Havana with his new virtuosic group.

The Idea of the new group started during recordings with the Team Cuba. Adonis Panter Calderón showed strong responsibility during the administrative process on guiding the group through the different evaluations. Attic Independent Production supports the project from its beginning on.

Even if the group was just founded they can already count on a devoted audience, not missing one concert. They are young, virtuosic, creative and popular.

The videoclip Cachita, produced by Attic Independent Production confirms the potential of the group.

Highquality fotos for international promotion was shot and a fanpage on facebook was started.

Adonis is currently the most creative and active protagonist of the afrocuban culture in Cuba. We are looking forward to great performances of the group as we see firm potential in the project.
