Hoezo in KINO

It’s 100% certain you know and love their sensuous music – but 95% certain you don’t know their name. 70’s British funk/soul sensation Cymande transformed many early hip hop DJ’s, but to the general public was forgotten until our Swedish music streaming friends put them in many, many playlists. The vibrant Getting It Back shows why Cymande was – and is! – a tremendously addictive band that should never again be forgotten. Their new world victory tour brings them to Vlieland’s Into The Great Wide Open-festival this September – a great reason for us to show this lovely film.

Storyline

They’re the greatest band you’ve never heard of… The British group Cymande are unsung heroes whose message of peace, love and funk sailed beyond Britain’s shores and helped shape music for five decades. Long after they stopped playing, the music played on, so they returned to play some more. Now their story is told on screen for for the first time, with tributes from a galaxy of musicians and producers influenced and enthralled by their music, including Mark Ronson, Kool DJ Red Alert, DJ Maseo, Jim James and Louis Vega.
