Music of Resistance – Afro Reggae

Anderson Sá turned his back on drug dealing and crime and formed AfroReggae – a group devoted to providing an alternative to the children in Brazil’s favelas.

I first came across AfroReggae at the BeyondTV International Film Festival held in Swansea, December 2006. No, not literally, we were not that lucky to have them perform, although the night before, at a party at the Monkey Café, a café cum nightclub, Swansea’s alternative music scene, we did have Llwybr Llaethog, Wales top hip-hop band perform. No, AfroReggae were featured in a film, Favela Rising.
