Nicaribbean Music Project Documentary

22 Jul 2015 by admin in Documentary, Flicks

The music heard and created in Nicaragua’s Caribbean coast is distinctly different from anything heard on the Pacific side of the country. Afro-descendant Bluefields musicians are using their art to engage in a process of self-making that disrupts hegemonic ideas of “Nicaraguan-ness” as defined by Pacific-based mestizo cultural forms. By identifying with Black Caribbean influences, musicians build their afro-identified pride and consciousness that aligns themselves with the African Diaspora on the Caribbean. By making these forms their own they are asserting an identity particular to their regional experience and history.
