A great musical revolution is going on in Africa right now and in this documentary by Göran Olsson (Black Power Mix Tape 1967–1975), Daniel Jadama, Lars Lovén we meet several interesting, creative and outspoken musicians from Ghana, Senegal, Angola and South Africa. The urban club music often contains traditional rhythms, and they have also become an expression of all the changes the African society is going through, from social divisions and secularization to the conflict between tradition and modernity. Interviews with one of the continent's greatest musical icons and political activists Fela Kutis are also heard through the documentary. Björn G Stenberg writes in Uppsala Nya Tidning "For everyone interested in music, this film is a must!"

The film is not playable outside of Sweden
