Berlin, Jun 13 (TD®R): July! We are at HKW Wassermusik Festival Berlin
Wassermusik: Black Atlantic Revisited from 2019, Jul 05, Fri — 2019, Jul 27, Sat
Tropical Diaspora® Records will be part of the Wassermusik Festival this year with focus on the Black Atlantic theme, indeed and we at Tropical Diaspora® try to create a narrative, musical and otherwise, about the people that crossed the Atlantic from Africa to the “Americas” and gave rise to different cultural expressions that reflect both the horror and hope of that experience.
Festival Description by HKW.
“In 1993 Paul Gilroy’s book The Black Atlantic: Modernity and Double Consciousness was published. In it, he examines how the history of the Black Atlantic diaspora defied art and knowledge to find new forms. Music is of particular importance in this context. In 2004 the Black Atlantic project grappling with Gilroy’s theories took place at HKW. Fifteen years later it’s time to take them up again. The focus of Wassermusik in 2019 – entitled Black Atlantic Revisited – is on the South Atlantic and its musical cultures. With concerts by Milton Nascimento, Angelique Kidjo, Gilberto Gil and many others, a film program and the Wassermarkt.
Curated by Detlef Diederichsen
The conference Echoes of the South Atlantic (July 10 and 11) in cooperation with the Goethe-Institut looks at the present-day situation of Atlantic relations between Africa, the Americas and Europe. Paul Gilroy is among the many contributors.”
