From Mambo to Hip Hop
Henry Chalfant, 2006, 56 min.
From Mambo to Hip Hop packs into one hour the incredible history of a community that, despite the odds, fuelled a musical revolution. Anyone with a passion for the music that's emerged from the cultural melting pot that is New York will devour Henry Chalfant's film. Chalfant also directed the seminal graffiti documentary Style Wars. It's a privilege and a genuine treat to have access to this footage and these interviews. From Mambo to Hip Hop delivers a terrific insight into the post war jazz and mambo era and traces the evolution of music from salsa to disco to hip hop. This is a story rooted in the South Bronx and it's a tale told with both pride and passion.
