Bembé's Journey the Black Atlantic / Viaje del Atlántico Negro

"There is a culture that is not specifically African, American, Caribbean, Latino, Spanish, British, American - but all of these at once, a Black Atlantic culture whose themes and techniques transcend ethnicity, race, nationality to produce something new." - Eric Lott, Nation
