56 minutes – USA / Malawi

IMDB synopsis: Malawi. This small land-locked African nation has long been a treasure chest of ancient Central-South African culture. As one of the continent’s great crossroads, Malawi has witnessed and absorbed great migrations from all points of the compass, each contributing to a richly charismatic music and dance heritage that has never been put before the public—until now. Deep Roots Malawi is a documentary aiming to expose some of the musical secrets of this captivating country, and has been filmed in cooperation with key figures in the music industry, along with one of the world's leading experts on Malawian music, Dr. Waliko Makhala. The film also raises issues about the survival of deeply felt cultural traditions in the modern world, and hence the reverberations of the story go throughout modern Africa and beyond.
