Black Echo III: Bamboo

Black Echo III: Bamboo

‘Black Echo III: Bamboo’ is the third movement of a composition by Etienne Charles as part of his newest album “Carnival: The Sound of a People”. The suite highlights the evolution of sonic identity in Trinidad & Tobago due to suppression by the British Colonial Authorities in the 19th century. In this movement, Charles goes to Claxton Bay to record the legendary group Claxton Bay Tamboo Bamboo. The footage was recorded for Charles to work with during his composition process. The film was constructed to showcase the inspirations and research behind the musical creation.
