Special edition of Movimientos presenting the multi-talented Colombian musician Mauricio Velasierra, as well as a screening of the acclaimed documentary Bananas.
Bananas follows the story of 12 Nicaraguan banana workers fighting a major corporation for their use of banned pesticides in banana cultivation. It offers a unique insight into the path that bananas take before they arrive in our supermarkets.
Mauricio Velasierra is a Colombian composer and master of the Andean flute – of which he has a large number of distinctive home-made versions. His music takes inspiration from traditional Andean music but takes it on a number of improvisatory – and often revelatory – journeys.
