It’s a homecoming story. As if they have come from a distant land, Poundo and her mystical lions land on the banks of Dakar to spread their creative energy.
From the historic Medina district to the Agit’Art Laboratory on the old Malian market, Poundo, armed with her mantra “We Are More”, takes possession of the city to loudly proclaim her return to the land of her ancestors.
“We Are More” is more than a message, it is a real manifesto, a thunderous appeal to the youth, urging them to regain the pride of their origins and take charge of their own future.
Proud of her history, proud of her origins, Poundo sings and dances a strong and forward-looking Africa.
She also pays a final tribute to the famous Senegalese sculptor and poet Joe Ouakam who died in 2017. He was an emblematic figure of the Agit’Art movement, born in the early 70s, which was advocating total and radical artistic independence.
Thus, “We Are More” highlights the beauty of the continent and its vital forces where art, music and dance are an infinite engine of creation and freedom.
