GURUMBÉ: AFRO ANDALUSIAN MEMORIES
Friday 25th May 2018
Dir: M. Angel Rosales, Documentary, Spain | Mexico | Portugal | Senegal, 2016, 72mins, Spanish, Portuguese with English subtitles

Gurumbé: Afro Andalusian Memories, a feature length documentary from anthropologist Miguel Ángel Rosales, explores the contribution of Afro Andalusians to flamenco as the art form developed. Gurumbé has won numerous awards in the festival circuit and it is currently premiering around the world.

Flamenco is synonymous with Spanish culture. Since its inception, theorists have sidelined the fundamental contribution of Afro Andalusians. Commercial exploitation of the American colonies brought hundreds of Africans to Seville to be sold as slaves, forming a population who over time managed to gain space in a society marked by racial prejudices. Music and dance were a fundamental part of their expression and the most important affirmation of their identity. As the black population began to disappear from Spain in the late 19th century, so too did their contribution to this extraordinary art form. In Gurumbé, their story is finally told.
