Get wrapped in a hot-blooded mingling of storytelling, dance, video, afrobeats, hip hop, soca, blues, dancehall, rumba, soukous, and visuals. Based on personal stories and a timeline of Afro urban music from way back to the future, “What Had Happened Was…” time travels through both our most intimate and swaggering moments, asking, Where did we come from, Where are we going? Created by Nkeiruka Oruche and directed by Tossie Long.
This project is made possible by support from the Creative Work Fund.
