What do “Está Rico” by Marc Anthony, Will Smith & Bad Bunny have in common with “Made For Now” by Janet Jackson x Daddy Yankee? They all high-jacked AfroBeats without giving the genre’s origin its props. “Bakosó” follows DJ Jigüe to his hometown of Santiago de Cuba to find inspiration from new sounds. While there, Jigüe finds Afrobeats has helped create a new genre called, Bakosó, which makes beautiful proof that the exchange between Cuba and Africa did not end with the Transatlantic Slave Trade. Through stunning visuals and a score created by the founders of the genre, the film shows the technology, culture, and landscape that shape this African-Caribbean fusion.

Audience Award at the 2019 KA Pan African Film Festival.
