KOUKAN KOURCIA, THE MEDIATORS
by Sani Elhadji Magori

Femmes, entièrement femmes

SUMMARY

The magical voice of Nigerian singer Zabaya Hussey is able to captivate souls. In a previous film, thanks to her, my father returned from exile. Two years after the riots that tore my village, I ask her to help me to organize a concert which appeases the rivalries. Then, we go on the road to convince the new generation of singers, Hamsou Garba, Zara Dibissou and Fati Niger, to participate in this call for peace.
