The great musical revolution of our time is taking place in Africa, affecting hundreds of millions of people. But only few have told the story of this avalanche of amazing, innovative and visual music.
Fonko gives a unique glimpse at the sounds of Africa, as well as travels to rapidly developing cities like Lagos, Luanda, and Johannesburg.
The narrator of Fonko is one of the greatest African music revolutionaries, Fela Kuti, as if speaking from the grave. Fela was also a Nigerian political activist, uniting the change in the society, as well as the breakthough in sound. Fela died in 1997, his voice will come from old recordings.
