Guitar hero

The Tuareg people belong in the Agedez region of Niger. A conflict with the central government has spread the Tuaregs across western Africa. The fight for the rights of the Tuareg people is now non-violent, and in this fight music plays a decisive role. In AGADEZ, THE MUSIC AND THE REBELLION we get to know the famous musician Bombino, who through patriotic songs and breakneck guitar solos unify and mobilize young and old alike.

Ron Wyman has been cinamatographer and editer in a series of short movies. AGADES, THE MUSIC AND THE REBELLION is his first movie as a director.
