Soy Afro Boliviano y Ke?

Rough-Cut Sample: "Nosotros los de la Saya" (“We of the Saya”) from AbNomad Media on Vimeo.


An interesting documentary project on Afro Bolivians and their struggle for rights and culture. They're trying to raise money to complete post-production, so if you'd like to help with financial contributions, here is information from the Vimeo Page:

This video is a trailer for this documentary-in-progress in order to raise funds for completion. For more information, please visit weofthesaya.com, or write to us at weofthesaya@gmail.com.

Also, read this article about rapper Abraham Bojorquez, Godfather of Bolivian Rap (influenced by time spent with Afro Brazilians), and his recent passing.

Track 5 Estamos Con La Raza is about the struggle of Afro Bolivians in particular, and was partly the inspiration for the documentary.
