Jan Haaken talks with AJ Wone about his film, “DiaTribe”, which screens this Friday evening, February 4th, at the Hollywood theater as part of the Cascade Festival of African Films. Tracing the evolution of hip-hop dance from traditional origins in Africa, “DiaTribe” features the music and wisdom of Ghanian Master Drummer and Portland legend, Obo Addy. Wone is a filmmaker, performing artist and historian with an emphasis on the oral and eurhythmic traditions of storytelling. He has independently produced, written and directed theater, film and television between his native roots in L.A. and the Pacific Northwest.
