Mixtape Trilogy: Stories Of The Power Of Music – Review

Music touches us all at some point or another in our lives. It could be when we’re growing up and learning more about what we like. It could be connected to a way we realise that we feel about ourselves and realise that there are others who feel the same.

It could also be about the way we’ve always been and the music we hear speaks of our experiences so that we can relate to a particular artist or band. Music reveals who we are and tells others about us as well, because when we find the music that we love then there’s no better way to connect with others.

Mixtape Trilogy: Stories of The Power of Music is a documentary that tells the stories of three people who have connected to music in various ways. Firstly, Dylan talks about how she came to accept herself and her sexuality through following Indigo Girls, an openly gay music duo who were most popular in the early Nineties.

Vijay Iyer, an Indian-American man whose parents emigrated to the US tells his story about how he felt so different growing up in a white town, but found the call of music in an unexpected place. Then there’s Mike Ford, a rapper who decided to put social issues into his music and connect to his community through hip hop after his own personal loss.

Spending time with each of the people it wants to focus on, Mixtape Trilogy tells their stories and reveals things about them which may dispel the myths about the kinds of people audiences may think they are at a first glance. For example, Dylan may seem like a deranged fanatic considering how many times she’s seen her favourite group (350+ and counting), but time with her reveals a very personal story and her connection to the music feels no more ridiculous than any other hobby.

People may also see Vijay Iyer and have certain expectations of what he is like and what his music may be like—based on his background and education. However, through his music and discussions of what he plays, it becomes clear what drives him to do what he does.

However, it’s Mike Ford that may have the most powerful message that he chosen to tell himself and in fear of sounding like a cliché, his story may be the most inspiring of all. Mixtape Trilogy is a documentary that really digs into the roots of what matters in music and may make audiences realise how it can mean so much.

Joel found out that he had a talent for absorbing film trivia at a young age. Ever since then he has probably watched more films than the average human being, not because he has no filter but because it’s one of the most enjoyable, fulfilling and enriching experiences that a person can have. He also has a weak spot for bad sci-fi/horror movies because he is a huge geek and doesn’t care who knows it.
