This documentary has been removed from youtube. If you want to see it, I don't know what are the official options but i downloaded it from idope, i'm presuming it's on many torrent sites like pirate bay etc.

I thought it was well interesting. Just watched the second half and it is nice to hear something about Oumou Sangare as i hadn't heard anything about her childhood except that she was a singer from an early age. The documentary is a tad cheesy but whatever it is still a good brief insight into these great artists lives and documenting African culture to a larger audience.

It gives another side to the African bootlegging and tells us why tapes are and were so popular in Africa. I though this was a pretty cool perspective.

There is loads of other stuff in this doc, i need to watch it properly at some stage.
