Africa is hip. For several years now, a veritable hype has erupted in cinemas, in museums, in fashion and in music. The global north is in the process of renegotiation its relationship with Africa and is intoxicated by the continent’s aesthetics. Not for the first time. Again and again over the past decades, Africa has served as a source of inspiration for the West, and as a projection surface, an object of appropriation but also of delineation. The documentary is taking the African renaissance as an opportunity to describe the major developments in African pop culture and their effect on the West, assisted by important stars and contemporary witnesses. Including music by: Miriam Makeba, E.T. Mensah, Joseph Kabasele, Papa Wemba, Bob Marley, Alpha Blondy, James Brown, Fela Kuti, Seun Kuti, Ray Lema, Sista Fa, Salif Keita, Cheb Khaled, Majid Bekkas, Mafikizolo, Youssou N´Dour, Peter Gabriel, Positive Black Soul, Spoek Mathambo, Maître Gims, Wizkid, MHD, Yonii, DJ Black Coffee, Distruction Boyz
