Will be a hip hop musical focusing on 5 different periods of African history, all connected by one tribe and family. The first act before colonialism exposes the conflict of two different tribes and the birth of the name Africa which was a tribal princes. The second act covers a period of colonialism, the third of struggle and liberation. In all these periods’ decedents play major parts and ancestors are never far away. The current times are marked by leadership problems. The last act shows Africa 60 years from now. The musical is aiming at a young urban audience in the big cities of the African continent.
The project is under development by Jerry Pooe and Roel Twijnstra.
