Sentimiento Documentary - Part 1 & 2

I came across a documentary featuring Emery Damon and Danny Maldonado from the Ilu Aye and Anya Ade crew. They discuss aspects of the Ocha Religion, as well as race/color in the NYC drumming scene. There are some great clips of Ilu Aye in action and even a rare treat where they are doing a little bachata at La Pregunta...pero que Sentimiento! These guys are talents man, nuff said...

This is particularly poignant for me, because I walked away from Ocha and from playing the music because of fears of participating in "cultural theft" in the early '90s. I will be saying more in my blog soon I hope, but am glad other people are having a different experience and vanquishing such fears.
