EXCLUSIVE ADVANCED MOVIE PREVIEW : Atlanta’s FunkJazz Kafé: “DIARY OF A DECADE” [Extended Film Trailer]


Soulheads, this looks like a must see.  For anyone even vaguely interested in underground soul music, the scene, the music and the artists should stay in the loop on this coming classic release.

From FunkJazzKafe.com:

This film is the story of a cultural legend as told by the innovators of an important, and in some cases overlooked, era in Black culture. Spanning the late 1980?s through to the early 2000?s, this story goes deep into the fabric of soul music, it’s definitions, it’s pioneers, it’s offspring, it’s movements, the challenges with the “mainstream” industry and the evolution of the FunkJazz Kafé, a music and arts movement born of Atlanta’s diverse musical heritage. The film covers the decade when Atlanta’s underground music scene became established on the world stage and a new generation of soul singers and musicians emerged.
