About this Event

**Bay Area Premiere**

How They Got Over

A feature length documentary about the African-American quartets who traveled the back roads of the Deep South in the 1930s and 40s creating a hard gospel sound and vigorous performing style that foreshadowed doo-wop, rhythm and blues, soul and Motown.

Runtime: 87 min

DJ Harry Duncan

Harry Duncan produces and hosts In The Soul Kitchen, the popular, weekly Roots & Rhythm radio show broadcast live on KCSM, the Bay Area’s jazz station.

Respected industry-wide as an innovator, Duncan serves up his own Roots & Rhythm mix: a rich, danceable musical stew of soul, funk, blues, roots reggae, ska and jazz plus African, Latin and select World music when spinning live and while In The Soul Kitchen.

This music mix gives audiences, artists and promoters a welcome alternative to the kinds of in-house music often played at festivals and concerts.

Duncan has appeared with a wide variety of artists including Aretha Franklin, Tedeschi-Trucks Band, Bonnie Raitt and Mavis Staples, The Roots, George Clinton and P-Funk, Bettye LaVette, Trombone Shorty, Irma Thomas, Dr. John, The Original Meters, Rebirth Brass Band, Dumpstaphunk, Cory Henry, Antibalas, Bombino, India.Arie, Lizz Wright, Charlie Hunter, Tower of Power, Boz Scaggs, Femi Kuti, Steel Pulse, Madness and The Specials.

Post-Screening Discussion and Audience Q&A led by DJ Harry Duncan

With the film's Producer Jerry Zoltan, Director Robert Clem, and Gospel DJ and producer Opal Nations.
