February 22, 2008: Brasilintime!

Today we welcome special guests and accomplished DJs/filmmakers/photographers B+ (aka Brian Cross) and Eric Coleman.  Together they form the Mochilla collective based out of LA.  Their latest project, Brasilintime, a documentary film and, subsequently,  a transnational jam session which brings together legendary jazz and funk musicians with their modern-day hiphop counterparts,  investigates the links between Afrodiasporic music from the U.S.A. to Brazil and back.  B+ and Coleman will spin some records and we’ll talk to them about the film, which screens tonight at 7 PM at the UCSB McCune Conference Room.
