Truth & Lies Music Presents a Revolution and Change Special - a free screening of Pablo Navarrete's 'Hip Hop Revolución' (Alborada Films 2015) documentary and a DJ session of music from Venezuela at Rough Trade Nottingham.
"Pablo Navarrete’s 'Hip-Hop Revolución' is quite simply one of the best documentaries made about music and politics in Latin America. A fascinating and informative exploration of the dynamic ways in which popular culture influences politics and vice versa, 'Hip-Hop Revolución' offers a unique perspective on Venezuela in the Chávez period."
British activist Jody McIntyre travels to Venezuela with UK-Iraqi rapper Lowkey to spend time with ‘Hip Hop Revolución’, a dynamic collective of musical revolutionaries. They witness their inspiring grassroots work and share music and ideas, exploring the cultural and political changes taking place in the country. At its heart, this film is about the power of music, community and the spirit of rebellion.
The event will be followed by a DJ session by Truth & Lies Music DJ's Joff and Ex-Friendly, including a selection of music from Venezuela and the region; from Hip Hop, Salsa and Parranda Carnival Music.
FREE ENTRY - NO TICKET NEEDED.
FLOOR ONE AT Rough Trade Nottingham IS LIFT ACCESSIBLE AND ALL AGES ARE WELCOME.
