Havana Club Rumba Sessions: La Clave Trailer (2015)
17 November 2015
Directed by Charlie Inman, Havana Club Rumba Sessions: La Clave sees Gilles Peterson, along with his old friend Ade Egun Crispin Robinson, guide the audience through rumba's continued significance in a country where a carefully preserved past has long sat side-by-side with innovation. The history of rumba, inextricably tied up with the slave trade, uniquely intertwines West African and Iberian musical styles. With roots in the Congo, Nigeria, Benin and Cameroon, different African religious institutions such as Ifa, Ekpe and Nkisi were remade in Cuba as Lukumi (Santeria), Palo, Abakua and Arara. The film draws together religious and social realities instituted by the African diaspora which have a distinct, if complex, connection to the rhythms foundational to contemporary club music.
