Perhaps the greatest musical revolution today is taking place far away from the news cameras – on the African continent. The film is a wild ride through the hottest musical trends that are getting people moving from Dakar to Cape Town.

"Music is the weapon of the future." Africa is no longer the Third World, as it continues to be portrayed by the European mainstream media. The last few years have seen turbulent social and political changes in countries like Ghana, Nigeria, Angola, Senegal, Burkina Faso and South Africa, which naturally are reflected in the art created by the local populations. Music is a means for them to strengthen their identity, a catalyst for historical and personal traumas, and offers space for voices that are not otherwise heard.
