ADIFF DC: CANDOMBE & TANGO NEGRO, THE AFRICAN ROOTS OF TANGO
Sunday, August 23, 2014 @ 7PM

CANDOMBE

More than two hundred years ago, there was an influx of slaves from Africa into Uruguay. Long after their emancipation, these individuals continued to comprise the poorest and most marginalized strata in society. Musician Fernado Nunez sees himself as the heir to "candombe," a dance and musical expression initiated these individuals, his slave ancestors. As the far-reaching, socio-cultural legacy of of candombe has yet to be acknowledged, Fernando Nunez and his friends from the back street quarter of Montevideo have taken on the responsibility of keeping these important cultural roots alive in the consciousness of the Uruguayan people. (Directed by Rafael Deugenio, 1993, Uruguay, Documentary, 16 min,


TANGO NEGRO, THE AFRICAN ROOTS OF TANGO
Tango Negro explores the expression of African-ness inherent in the dance of the "tango" and the contribution of African cultures to the dance's creation. Angolan director, Dom Pedro, details the dance's early cultural significance as a depiction of the social life of captured African slaves and provides an expansive compilation of musical performances and interviews from tango enthusiasts and historians alike.  Tango Negro provides a novel insight into the depth of tango's sub-Saharan African musical influencea presence that has crossed oceans and endured the tides of forced bondage. (France, 2013, 93 min., Dom Pedro, dir., Documentary)
