DIVAS OF SOUTH AMERICA: SUSANA BACA, MEMORIA VIVA/MARIA BETHANIA, MUSIC IS PERFUME
Divas of South America:
Saturday, March 29 @ 4pm

SUSANA BACA, MEMORIA VIVA
Susana Baca is not only a champion in the performance and preservation of Afro-Peruvian heritage, but also an elegant singer whose shimmering voice sings of love, loss and life. Susana and her husband Ricardo Pereira have founded the Instituto Negrocontinuo "Black Continuum" in Lima, a spirited facility for the exploration, expression, and creation of Black Peruvian culture. While Baca has dedicated herself to researching and performing virtually all forms of Afro-Peruvian folklore, it is the lando that has become her trademark. This slow to mid-tempo, highly evocative mix of Spanish, Indigenous and African rhythms has become what the son is to Cuba, or the samba to Brazil--the lando is the sound of Black Peru.
Directed by Mark Dixon, 2003, 54 min, Peru/Belgium, musical documentary, Spanish with English subtitles

MARIA BETHANIA, MUSIC IS PERFUME
Maria Bethânia is a living musical legend whose earthy interpretations of Brazilian film music have inspired generations of fans and musical colleagues all over the world. In this documentary by Georges Cachot, we see many famous faces from the music world alongside Bethânia. Director Georges Gachot intercuts concert footage and interviews with the singer's family, friends and peers to create a warm and personal portrait of a woman and her impeccable art.
Directed by Georges Gachot, 2005, 82 min, Brazil/Switzerland, musical documentary, Portuguese with English subtitles
