Description

People of Palenque: The Music & People of Palenque [Import] on CD

UK three disc (two CDs + PAL/Region 0 DVD). Filmmakers Santiago Posada and Simon Meija arrived at Palenque, near the Caribbean coast of Colombia to record the music of the area and to make a documentary film about the people of Palenque. Palenque is a central location for Afro-Colombian culture - the location of the first free slave (or Maroon) community in the Americas. With it's own unique style of music and language, heavily influenced by it's African heritage, it holds a unique position and is today proclaimed by UNESCO as a Masterpiece of the Oral And Intangible Heritage of Humanity. The filmmakers built a studio in the town in order to record the highly percussive roots music that mixes African and Latin in equal flavors. Once back home they enlisted a select number of likeminded Electronic, House and Dubstep artists to produce a host of remixes, including Osunlade, Matias Aguayo, Kromestar and others to interpret the original works. This set includes the DVD, a CD featuring original music and a CD of the remixes. It comes in a stunning three case box set with sleeve notes about the project, the history of Palenque, and exclusive photography. SoulJazz.
