Hope you’re well! I’m writing to introduce the project BAKOSÓ, the Cuban music project that will be screening in September at the Urbanworld Festival in Times Square. BAKOSÓ: AfroBeats of Cuba is a short film created by FISTUP TV in collaboration with Havana’s Urban Music label, Guámpara Music (featured in VIBE’s documentary on Cuban hip hop). The film has been traveling across the world and has presented at sold-out screenings, won awards at international film festivals, and been covered by culture and music outlets including REMEZCLA and OKAYAFRICA. BAKOSÓ’S New York City Premiere will be at the Urbanworld Festival on Sept. 21st at 9:30pm AMC Theater in Times Square come join the director, Eli Jacobs-Fantauzzi who will be flying in from Puerto Rico as well as the film’s star, DJ Jigüe who will be flying in from Cuba, we are hoping that you can join us.
