about the movie
SANTOS–Skin to Skin is a film portrait of community activist and seven-time Grammy nominee John Santos, a “keeper of the Afro-Caribbean flame.” Rich in musical performances, Santos links the rhythms of his ancestors to contemporary struggles of identity and social justice.
It is the passion for his craft and his deep understanding of its place in community and heritage that makes Golden’s film so compelling.”
A life-embracing attitude is what shines through SANTOS – SKIN TO SKIN. As musician and bandleader Eddie Palmieri confides, ‘John Santos lives in my heart and pays no rent.’”
