Afro-Sound a film by Richard C Robinson Jr., 2006


“Jazz can be traced back to West Africa, and moved to the United States through the transatlantic slave trade according to Richard Robinson, of Woodbury. When it reached America’s shores, it slowly branched off into ragtime, New Orleans Second Line, Blues and Jazz. Robinson will perform at the festival with his band Electric Grioland, that plays a mix of jazz from raggae to blues. On Oct. 16, he will kick off the festival at the Walter Hill Elementary School with a program for students that teaches the origins and elements of jazz.”
