Today was the world premiere of a movie documentation on REGGAEVILLE about Nilotika Cultural Ensemble from Uganda. The debut album “Nyabingi Resurrection” was mixed by Kabanjak and the music of the band follows the ancient tradition of the Nyabingi movement in East Africa. The movie documentation gives background information to the music of Nilotika Cultural Ensemble and the culture behind it.
This is a piece of important history about East African resistance to colonialism and the influence of the Nyabingi movement on the Rastafari movement on Jamaica.
