FEEDBACK FROM HOSTING ORGANIZATIONS
  • …Q&A, in Jerez de la Frontera, SPAIN

      Thank you for sharing your documentary ... with our guests. It was eye-opening to learn about the long roots of the African Diaspora. There was an Afro-Peruvian performance in LA a few years ago, but it did not offer the depth of history your film did....


      Dalena Hunter, presenter/hostess
      The Black Forum, Bunche Center for African American Studies at UCLA Los Angeles, CA, USA

      We ... co-produc[ed] an event [with Eve A. Ma] that included ... screening ... Masters of Rhythm and a live music demonstration ....

      .... The audience reacted very positively ... and we even extended the official end time ....


      Bianca Torres, co-director
      La Peña Cultural Center
      Berkeley, California, USA

      ....The more than ample public that attended the screening (and later Q&A)...gave positive validation for your important work....

      ...[T]he performers....seemed to jump off the screen and create a feeling of...entertainment & community you ...only expect...from live performance.

      Javier Padilla Gil, managing director
      Sala la Quemá (cinema cycle)
