Documentary, African drummer leaves village, makes it big in the world. Great drumming!!
20 October 2004 | by DocFilmSee all my reviews

I saw this more than twelve years ago, but it sticks with me. The documentary follows a drummer from a francophone African country village on his world tour and through his triumphant return to his village. The complex emotions he and his friends and family express on his return are deeply moving -- he has seen the world and has had the world see his talent and the culture of his people, and the tears express both that immense journey and also that he had been so absorbed in the moment in his journey that his rapprochement with his people is a sudden shock --- as if only then does he realize that he has been away. There are ample episodes of complex, polyrhytmic drumming (the djembe) worth the viewing in themselves.
