” From Mambo To Hip Hop “
Finally got around to checking the very thorough “FROM MAMBO TO HIP HOP” documentary recently….This is a heavy piece of work..
DONT SLEEP (Watch in it’s entirety)..
Another classic Hip-Hop documentary by Henry Chalfant. From Mambo To Hip Hop: A South Bronx Tale is an hour-long documentary that tells a story about the creative life of the South Bronx, beginning with the Puerto Rican migration and the adoption of Cuban rhythms to create the New York salsa sound; continuing with the fires that destroyed the neighborhood but not the creative spirit of its people; chronicling the rise of hip hop from the ashes; and ending with reflections on the power of the neighborhood’s music to ensure the survival of several generations of its residents, and, in the process, take the world’s pop culture by storm.
