Sons of Benkos2003

  • 3.9
An entertaining documentary that explores the African culture of Colombia through music. The film presents the music of the Sons of Benkos, one of the most important Black leaders in the fight for freedom during the times of slavery in Colombia. The film also shows the evolution of Afro-Colombian music over time through the fusion of Cuban and contemporary African rhythms with traditional Afro-Colombian music.

Beautiful depiction of African-Colombian music through the ages and styles. Didn't like the voiceover, but the images and music are timeless and wonderful.
