It’s a music business cliché that socially-aware hit records are a contradiction in terms. But somehow Latin Quarter have found the magic formula for this idea of pop and politics.
This recipe has obviously worked. The single “Radio Africa” rocketed up the charts. The album “Modern Times” was both a critical and chart success.
With their hypnotic melodies and reflective lyrics, Latin Quarter are truly a band for the Eighties – and this film proves it.
