Salsa Opus 4: Venezuela, a visa for the barrios

A documentary directed by .

Synopsis

Venezuela has an extremely rich musical past – the rhythms of Soca, Merengue, Calypso, and Steel Bands come together to create a vibrantly original Salsa. But each province has made its contribution – from Barlovento come the drum rhythms of the African community; from Maracaïbo come the followers of Gaïta Zuliana; and from El Callao and the Atlantic coast comes Calypso. Each of these musical influences, whether Afro-Antillais or Latin, have in the Caribbean tradition become integral parts of the c arnivals and dance of Venezuela. Featuring performances by: Oscar D’Leon, Dimension Latina, The Willian Pucci Orchestra, and Complot.
