‘Chabuco:’ A Colombian Innovating Vallenato Music with Latin Jazz

Colombia is a country known for its salsa and vallenato. Vallenato is the folkloric, poetic music of its coast which its singer/songwriter Jose Dario Martinez Acosta, aka Chabuco, has been listening to since he was a child due to his father’s influence, the legendary guitarist Hugues Martinez. With his fourth solo album titled Encuentro, he mixes the sounds of vallenato from the Caribbean coast of Colombia, with jazz and bossa nova, resulting in a beautiful and unique sound of Latin Jazz.

Though his film Equalizer 2 is not a prestige film, if its anything like the original, it should be fun. Another great American actor releasing a film is Meryl Streep. Her Mamma Mia sequel should target women and those looking for romantic stories to reinforce their belief in everlasting love. Finally, former Broadway Hamilton actor Daveed Diggs makes an Oakland film that should be talked about after you leave the  theater.

This Week In Movies: ‘Skyscraper,’ ‘Shock and Awe,’ ‘Gauguin: Voyage to Tahiti’

‘This Week In Movies’ is back! As July turns to its second week, it has seen the tally of a record-breaking year in films, thanks to the superhero and action-genre (Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War and Jurassic World 2). But  though billion dollar tentpoles are not releasing this week, we do have an actioner with a family sensibility – Skyscraper – starring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. His choices for films are diverging from guns, suplexes and corny jokes to family, social  issues and more human stories. There’s also Shock and Awe, which has all the bells and whistles from a prestige journalism film that could make it to the Oscars, but not there’s not much hype behind it. Then there’s Dark Money, a documentary about where political ads and those dark sources who fund it intersect that could fit into a doubel bill with the previous aforementioned. And if you like art, then Gauguin: Voyage to Tahiti is a viewing necessity. It stars European star Vincent Cassell playing the eponymous painter. Enjoy the trailers and remember to listen to our podcast this Friday for our review of movies and interviews with filmmakers and other notable figures of American pop culture.
