From Mambo to Hip Hop
Henry Chalfant, U.S., 2005, 56m

There’s a postage stamp of an urban sidewalk known by people of a certain age for having burned to the ground. A more recent generation know it as the place where, out of the ashes hip hop and break dancing were born. An older generation remembers when this turf, The South Bronx, produced salsa. A testament to the neighborhood’s power to revitalize itself through music and dance and to take the world’s pop culture by storm. Introduced by director.
