Bakosó: AfroBeats of Cuba
Synopsis:

What do Está Rico by Marc Anthony, Will Smith & Bad Bunny have in common with Made For Now by Janet Jackson x Daddy Yankee? They both high-jacked AfroBeats and did not give the genres origin props. Bakosó is a film that does the opposite, following DJ Jigüe to his hometown of Santiago de Cuba to find inspiration from the new sounds. He finds Afrobeats has helped create a new genre called Bakosó, which itself is beautiful proof that the exchange between Cuba and Africa did not end with the Transatlantic slave trade. Through stunning visuals and a score created by the founders of the genre, the film shows the technology, culture and landscape that shape this African-Caribbean fusion.
