AFRICAN LEGACY: SOLIDARITY IN SAYA: AN AFRO-BOLIVIAN MUSIC MOVEMENT
Since the abolition of slavery, Afro-Bolivians have remained isolated in rural poverty as subsistence farmers. In recent decades, there has been a wave of urban migration and youths in urban centers have built a supportive community around the traditional Afro-Bolivian Saya music creating a refuge from marginalization in mainstream Bolivian society. The social  cohesion and unity cultivated within the Saya group has become a platform for political activism to confront the invisibility of the Afro-Bolivian minority. Rather than standing idle while the colonial hegemonic system of racial hierarchy defines them, the Afro-Bolivian Saya group members  empower themselves by defining their own history and identity through public music performances.

Bolivia/USA, 2009, 30 min, Doc, Spanish with English subtitles, Maya Jensen, dir.

Q&A after screening. Part of African Legacy Program.
