Sintonizah uncovers how reggae in Brazil is in tune with Jamaica. The documentary film takes the spectators to the roots of the genre, which slipped in São Luís, Maranhão, by accident and influenced the establishment of local culture.
Directed by Lecuk Ishida and Willy Biondani, the medium-length film results from the meeting of great characters in Jamaican music who are crazy about reggae, and who nestle in the ghettos’ dance floors and make the music become their profession and reason to live.
"It’s fascinating to find out that some demonstrations such as reggae are so strong. Despite the geographic distance and the different codes, the music created identification among people, who end up living the same way when inspired by the sound", says Lecuk Ishida.
Produced by Biondani with the support of BossaNovaFilms, the documentary will be shown for the first time in a free session on Tuesday, January 27, at 8 p.m., in the Paulo Emílio room at Centro Cultural São Paulo. The premiere will be followed by a debate with the director Lecuk Ishida and his team.
