Musical Movie Fun!
"Musically Speaking:" free screening of SGINGER BAKER IN AFRICAtonight at the Antenna Gallery (3718 St. Claude Ave.) at 7:00 pm - In November 1971, Ginger Baker, the legendary drummer of Cream and Blind Faith, decided to set up a recording studio in Lagos, then the capital of Nigeria. Baker was one of the first rock musicians to realize the potential of African music, and decided that it would be a rewarding musical experience to travel to Nigeria over land across the Sahara desert – a journey that would lead him into a number of adventures, including a number of legendary jam sessions with his friend at that time, Fela Kuti, pioneer of Afrobeat music. This film by Tony Palmer follows Baker’s odyssey as he makes his journey and finally arrives in Nigeria to set up his studio, which would run successfully through the 1970s as a facility for both local and western musicians (Paul McCartney’s Wings recorded Band On The Run there). (1973, 53 min.)
**MUSICALLY SPEAKING is a series of music-themed movie and documentary screenings, curated/hosted by DJ Soul Sister, and co-presented by Press Street, Charitable Film Network, WWOZ FM, and the N.O. African American Museum. Free admission and refreshments. Contact email@example.com
