The Screen Guide

From the lazy late night Samba beats in the clubs of Rio's backstreets, to the pulsating rhythms of the heart of Bahia, SLAVE TO THE RYTHM showcases the brilliance of African-Brazilian musical talent today. Rhythms are integral to Afro-Brazilian spiritual and social balance. Heard in their religious ceremonies and festive celebrations, the musical rhythms motivate their inner force. African slaves in Brazil endured centuries of hardship but they kept their culture and spirituality alive with their extraordinary talent, strength and self-respect.
