A musical Journey

Asset 2@0.5x-8.png
 

Music is a form of storytelling and communication that has always played a role in African society. 

Songs accompany birth and death, marriage and rites-of-passage, farming and hunting, politics and social projects. There is no better way to tell a uniquely African story of growing a wonder of the world than through the vehicle of music.

Inna breathes musical expression in her daily life. So even more so, music plays an organic role in our odyssey. Inna immerses herself with the people she meets and compulsively harmonizes in musical collaborations at the various cultural pit stops along the road. Inna is a convener, a conductor, a conduit - moved to record the people’s story.

The music in our film bespeaks a greater sense of community, creating a common cadence for the Sahelian family in sync with the promise and aspiration of The Great Green Wall. With the sonic

The music in our film bespeaks a greater sense of community, creating a common cadence for the Sahelian family in sync with the promise and aspiration of The Great Green Wall. With the sonic alchemy of diverse musical styles and people, the film crochets anacoustic collage of the hopes, dreams, and character of Africa. Inna is discovering the soundtrack of the Wall, bringing alive the spiritual and rhythmical heart of the African Dream. Inna listens to the pan-African sounds of life’s harmony, and of its discord. She plays the role of Pied Piper, on a pulsing expedition to enlist Africa’s impassioned artists living the pain and perseverance of the region - seeking out what unites us in our collective human experience, rather than what divides us.

Ultimately, the making-an-album road-trip commemoration will capture a unique moment in history - transporting our audience into the hopeful choir that is the Great Green Wall. And forever venerating an unforgettable chorus of culture and community.

You can use your music however you choose to, but for me, it’s all about having a platform and a voice. I can use my music as a platform to give a voice to people and issues which otherwise have no voice and also to deal with problems that I’m concerned about.
