Description

GURUMBE: AFRO-ANDALOUSIAN MEMORIES

SUNDAY, DECEMBER, 10TH 2017

Flamenco is synonymous with Spanish culture. Since its inception, theorists have sidelined the fundamental contribution of Afro-Andalusians.

Commercial exploitation of the American colonies brought hundreds of Africans to Spain to be sold as slaves, forming a population who over time managed to gain space in a society wrought with racial prejudices. Music and dance were a fundamental part of their expression and the most important affirmation of their identity. As the black population began to disappear from Spain in the late 19th century, so too did their contribution to this extraordinary art form. In Gurumbé, their story is finally told. Directed by M. Angel Rosales, Spain/Mexico/Portugal/Senegal, 2016, Documentary/History, Music, 72 min, in Spanish with English subtitles.
