In an unconventional and upbeat form, “Broken Vibes” takes us off to the heart of the Broken Beat universe, a musical mixture born at the end of the last century brewing and drawing influences from the wide spectrum of Black Music : Jazz, Hip-Hop, Soul, Drum&Bass... Reaching further the mere documentary on a musical genre, “Broken Vibes” aims at exploring the social, cultural and economical aspects of a movement, once local and now international, that grew amid a collective of talented and dedicated young people stemming from “West London”, a neighbourhood which had previously witnessed the birth of Punk, Acid Jazz, Jungle music…and of the sound systems culture nowadays embodied by the infamous Notting Hill Carnival.

This 1981 live show at Washington DC's famous Blues Alley features drummer Max Roach and his band.
Fluxus artist and composer Takehisa Kosugi assembled a crew of young musicians and hit the road in a VW bus from Rotterdam to the Taj Mahal, playing a series of shows along the way in which the band used traditional instruments run through a series of electronic effects to create long sheets of drone both pulsing and timeless.
