WATA follows the journey of Jazz music
travelling across waters from it’s African
influences, it’s New Orleans emergence
and drawing particular focus on it’s current resurgence in London today. In this film, Jazz music is portrayed as the African water spirit, Mami Wata. Her story, like Jazz, has travelled across countries, seas and generations. Mami Wata is an ode to the cultural root of Jazz.
