Africa Rising

As the cultural sector is becoming more diverse, all eyes are on African pop culture. Its stars are gaining international attention. But culture from Africa has long influenced artists in the West.

Cinema, exhibitions, fashion and music from Africa are creating a buzz around the world. And not for the first time — artists from Africa have often been a source of inspiration for artists from the west. Africa Rising explores the boom of African pop culture and its impact on the west, with help from the continent’s biggest stars and people who have witnessed the developments first hand.

The film travels in time from the independence era to the Cold War, the end of apartheid and to the renaissance of today. We explore the artists and styles that have flourished in Europe and the US, like Miriam Makeba, Papa Wemba, Manu Dibango, Fela Kuti, Wizkid and Die Antwoord. The film is also dedicated to pop culture icons of the African diaspora, like James Brown, Bob Marley and Public Enemy. And Maître Gims, who was born in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and is now one of the most successful French-speaking music artists in the world.
