Getting It Back: The Story of Cymande
They’re the greatest band you’ve never heard of…
The South London band 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 the first time, with tributes from a galaxy of musicians and producers influenced and enthralled by their music, including Mark Ronson, Norman Jay, Jazzie B, DJ Maseo of De La Soul, Jim James and Louie Vega.
This screening is a collaboration between Goldsmiths College and The Bear Church. ‘Getting It Back’ is not yet on general release.
Entrance is through the main doors on Lewisham Way. Unfortunately we cannot offer a bar, so do bring your own drinks and snacks for the full cinema experience.
