The film ASMAWA is not just a film about a “Euro-boy” riding brakeless down a mountain road in East Africa’s Eritrea. It’s more the story of a pure-hearted athlete who discovers a new world – not least within himself… Little did I know about the rich bike tradition in Eritrea!

Spoek Mathambo is a post-Apartheid glam-rap prince from Soweto. Breaking the notion and stereotype expectations of African musicians, his tunes don’t sound South African – no longer looking back on cultural ties, while fusing beats and sounds from synth mixers & samplers to kwaito beats…chill

Nneka Egbuna, Nigerian-German singer/songwriter, has a great voice and confrontational style. In 2010, she was awarded Best Indigenous Artist in Nigeria at the Nigerian Entertainment Awards. Rolling Stone describes her as “…pure hotness.” Check her out.

Young African Invents Touch Screen Medical Tablet:
Here’s an example of African innovation at its finest.

Arthur Zang, a 24 year-old Cameroonian engineer, has invented the Cardiopad, a touch screen medical tablet that enables heart examinations such as the electrocardiogram (ECG) to be performed at remote, rural locations while the results of the test are transferred wirelessly to specialists who can interpret them. The device spares African patients living in remote areas the trouble of having to travel to urban centers to seek medical examinations.

Hardcore??? Nothing is as hardcore as death metal- but apparently “the hardest hardcore is Angolan hardcore”. As an aftermath to the bombings of the Angolan city Huambo, back in 1998, the death metal scene attracted a crowd of metal heads dedicated to the music genre which spoke of the previous battles and wars experienced in the country -“a scream of revolt”- is what hardcore death metal is all about in Angola.

The documentary film Death Metal Angola is directed by Jeremy Xido and produced by CABULA6 and Coalition Films, it’s about the first ever national rock concert in Angola, a project aimed to collect and expand rock music nation wise, covering the contemporary rock music scene. I can’t wait to see the complete version planned for release in 2012.

Death Metal, direct from Angola…

Hasaki Ya Suda (The Three Black Samurai)

Heavily influenced by samurai films from film makers such as Akira Kurosawa, filmaker Cédric Ido produced a short award winning film, Hasaki Ya Suda (The Three Black Samurai) set in the future. Joining the trend of films and projects that explore AfroFuturism, the film is a great exploration of the mixing of genres, culture and language. Hailing from Burkina Faso, Cedric ido is set to produce more feature films for Focus Features Africa and is set to join other reputable African film makers. Brilliant short film, indeed!

“Native Sun,” is a short-film, set in Ghana, that follows an imaginative young boy as he searches for his father. The movie, written and co-directed by Blitz the Ambassador, features music from his upcoming album of the same title.

It’s a brilliant visual representation of Africa, much different from the average perspective of poverty and despair. A reality of Ghana seen through the whimsical eyes of a young boy.

Safaricom Proudly Kenya is a visually beautiful advertising campaign. It was produced with a 600 member choir singing in Swahili in scenic locations around Kenya. The locations are Mt Longonot crater, Mt Elgon, alongside the Tana River, Ndere Island, Porror Ridge, the Aberdare Range, Lake Victoria, Kericho, and in the hills at Suguta Valley south of Lake Turkana. I hope you enjoy it!
