Official Trailer for ‘Getting It Back: The Story of Cymande’ Music Doc

Abramorama has released the official trailer for ‘Getting It Back: The Story of Cymande’, a UK music documentary set to be released this year. The film originally premiered in 2022 at the SXSW Film Festival and London Film Festival, and is now getting ready for a UK and US theatrical debut as the band Cymande prepares to go back on tour.

The documentary sheds light on the band Cymande, a group that may not be familiar to everyone but leaves a lasting impact after watching this film. The band’s message of peace, love, and funk transcended borders and influenced music for over five decades. Even after they stopped performing, their music continued to resonate, leading them to reunite and perform once again.

In support of the film, Cymande will be embarking on a worldwide tour in 2024 and is currently working on new music to be released this year. The band expressed their excitement about partnering with Abramorama to share their story on a global scale and spread their message far and wide.

Directed by Tim MacKenzie-Smith, ‘Getting It Back: The Story of Cymande’ showcases the untold story of the band’s journey from South London to the US, where they found success with their unique blend of jazz, funk, soul, and Caribbean grooves. Despite facing prejudice and disbanding in 1975, their music continued to inspire new generations of artists.

The documentary features archival footage and new interviews with the original band members, providing an in-depth look at the unsung heroes behind the music. ‘Getting It Back: The Story of Cymande’ will hit select US theaters in late April, giving audiences the opportunity to discover the incredible legacy of this groundbreaking band.
