1. The Seckou Keita Quartet tour of Senegal and Gambia
    In December 2006 and January 2007 Seckou Keita, London based composer and kora player from Senegal, toured Senegal and Gambia with his quartet.
    It was the first time that Seckou was going back to perform in his country with a multinational ensemble playing music that is based on the West African tradition but incorporates influences from other parts of the world.
    I followed the tour, filming the performances and places, interviewing people and trying to give a portrait of a changing reality.
    The result is a one hour documentary made in cooperation with Katia Beltrame, of which this is the trailer.
    To order copies of the DVD with the full feature contact Chelima Fade, the quartet's manager at World Artventures.
    Filmed by Roberto Battista, edited by Katia Beltrame and produced by Chelima Fade
