> SESSION 1: (MIDDAY-2.15PM)


BUENOS AIRES RAP
75 mins, 2014, Diane Ghogomu, Segundo Bercetche and Sebastian Muñoz
**European Premiere and Skype Q&A with Diane Ghogumo
Dynamic documentary exploring hip-hop culture's influence on Buenos Aires, Argentina and vice versa.

"Buenos Aires Rap is a documentary which, as the name suggests, is about the rap and hip-hop scenes active in Buenos Aires today. But it’s more than that. Directors Diane Ghogomu, Segundo Bercetche and Sebastian Muñoz have taken hip-hop and used it as a framework to portray a snapshot of the variations of life in contemporary Buenos Aires. It’s a stunning piece of film-making, with characters as dynamic and engaging as the music they’re making, as well as beautiful shots of the city, from the streets of the provincial slums to the clubs in the city centre."

Eclectic Chilean ensemble formed in London in 2014, named after Condorito, a cartoon born in Chile in 1949 which encapsulates the best and the worst of Latin American idiosyncrasy. Whilst the band play music rooted in Chilean music heritage, their loyalty to tradition is to be tested.

Perotá Chingó

Argentinian band Perotá Chingó is a project in constant transformation that today embarks on a new musical and conceptual chapter. Now the band is extending the boundaries of its acoustic style, interweaving folklore, the ancestral evocation of voices and the technological power of electronic beats. Having been touring the world for the best part of the last decade, they now bring their full live show to London’s Rich Mix for their UK debut.
