    • Synopsis
    • For the Afro descendants community candombe is, rather than a musical genre, a cultural expression and a way of living.
      The drummers´parades (llamadas) convey a manner of resistance which remains since the time of slavery.

      In "I´m drum", the youngest members of the Movimiento Afro take on the task of reconstructing the history of the African Uruguayan immigration,by visiting the most important referents of the community in Argentina, afro candombe men and women who have made the stories of drum and candombe part of their own lives.

      This documentary shows the cosmovision of a community which has been historically affected by racism and exclusion.
