New York To Conakry

In this film we follow 5 drummers and 2 dancers from the NYC area as they travel across the pacific back to the motherland to Conakry, the capital of Guinea, West Africa. Through this cultural exchange between the African American and African artists, their performances and telling of the many dances and song from the motherland, how they have influenced, transformed and evolved throughout the Diaspora. More importantly, it reflects the love and camaraderie between the African artist and their brothers and sisters of the diaspora.
