For the Tuareg, the desert is freedom. Music is the power.
AGADEZ, the Music and the Rebellion, the award winning documentary by Ron Wyman featuring international music star Bombino, will screen at The Music Hall in Portsmouth on March 30th @7PM as part of their Film Matters series.
Follow director Wyman as he takes you on a journey to the sands of the Sahara, tracking down the meaning of peace out of conflict and its unlikely messenger – a soft spoken guitarist whose music has become the soundtrack of a new Tuareg generation.
After the screening, Wyman will be joined by RAIN founder Bess Palmisciano and soundtrack composer/sound engineer Chris DeCato to host a discussion focusing on the making of “AGADEZ” and the unique challenges faced by Tuareg nomads in West Africa as their legendary culture meets head-on with the 21st century.
