In the meantime, thank you to the wonderful JayJay for sharing this exclusive article on Matt and his new music documentary from The Luxury Channel.
Long time fans will know that Matt is very dedicated about music especially Afro-Carribean genres, collecting rare vinyl and has directed music videos before, as well as starring in them.
This new documentary, a real passion project, explores the influence of a Cuban jazz inspired musician, “El Gran” Francisco Fellove as Matt documented his musical legacy before Fellove’s passing away last year.

Stating how privileged he was to spend time with Francisco, Matt talks about how the Cuban and Mexican musicians were “so creative and interesting” that he was driven to film “the people and their relationships and the way they took care of each other.”

“@RumbleFishFans I’ve seen a lot of it. Very interesting. And I’m not even musical.
He’s been working on this for years.”
