The two-part music documentary “Afrobeats, from Nigeria to the world” retraces the socio-economic, historical and musical aspects of the biggest African phenomenon of these past 50 years.
What exactly is Afrobeat? How did this music genre impose its style so rapidly? Where does it come from? Who are its founders? And most importantly, what does this new wave of sound mean for the future of the music industry?
In order to get answers to all of these questions, TRACE travelled for 4 years around Europe, Africa and in the USA to collect over 40 testimonies from the movement’s key actors among whom are Davido, J Martins, Psquare, D’Banj, Bracket, Skales, Akon, Femi Kuti, Flavour, Jidenna, Yemi Alade, MHD, Niska, Sidiki Diabaté, Fuse ODG, Sarkodie, Wizzboy, Eddy Kenzo, Youssou N’Dour, Passi, Mafikizolo, Khuli Chana, Cassper Nyovest, Banky W and many others.
