Shot on three continents, this film provides an inside look at Christopher Kirkley’s project Sahel Sounds – a blog, record label and platform to explore arts and music of the Sahel region through non-traditional ethnographic fieldwork.

Neither a strict portrait, nor a straight music documentary, but rather an attempt to bridge cultural and geographical distances, the film celebrates the musical performances of current artists from Niger, while leaving room to reflect on today’s role of ethnomusicology.
