Yakima-Morelia Sister City Association presents CINEMA LATINO 2016 Latin Film Series. Latin boogaloo is New York City. A bilingual mixture of R&B and Afro-Cuban rhythms and melodies, it is a product of the melting pot, a colorful expression of 1960's Latino soul, straight from the streets of El Barrio, the South Bronx and Brooklyn. Starring Latin boogaloo legends like Joe Bataan, Johnny Colon and Pete Rodriguez, We Like It Like That explores this lesser-known, but pivotal moment in Latin music history, through original interviews, music recordings, live performances, dancing and rare archival footage and images.
Locarno is the Latin project of Juno award winning musician and Paperboys frontman, Tom Landa. The music, like him, is part Mexican but with strong doses of Cuban Son, Folk Music, Pop and Funk. There are threads of Son Jarocho and Salsa but the songs are more edgy and contemporary than that. The music could be compared to Manu Chao, Ozomatli or Rodrigo and Gabriela but although there are similarities it is truly original and a new flavour in the Latin music genre.
Award winning Segovia-trained guitarist/composer Andre Feriante has performed for over 30 years in Europe, South America, and the United States. Beginning with his first concert in Rome in 1979, he has introduced a sensual and contemporary sound to an otherwise traditional genre. His creative blend of classical, flamenco and Brazilian styles speaks to people from all walks of life. Mother's Day in Yakima would not be the same without Andre Feriante!
Kevin Locke (Tokeya Inajin is his Lakota name, meaning The First to Arise) is known throughout the world as a visionary Hoop Dancer, the preeminent player of the indigenous Northern Plains flute, a traditional storyteller, cultural ambassador, recording artist and educator.
Having accomplished more as a lawyer than most lawyers could dream of (White House lawyer, Starbucks GC, the list goes on), Paula now fronts her own band, sings, and writes music. What may seem to be a huge change in direction is less so when explained by Paula. Hear Paula's story about her interesting career path, a different take on diversity, and learn about her superpower.
Opening for Paula Boggs is Black Biscuit. They are the culmination of numerous hockey related head injuries of the three front men, Mike Moreside, Shane Pierone and John Maxwell. The alt-powerpop-rock style of the band has been described as "Buddy Holly Meets Generation X" but the band would just call it energy-filled fun Rock and Roll that will make you want to dance and ....perhaps body-check your dance partner.
