India / South Africa
Musical portrait from Durban and South Africa.
Gandhi lived for 20 years in South Africa: for the most part, in Durban, the country’s “Indian” city.
It was during this period that he developed his philosophy of non-violence, which directly influenced the ANC and Mandela, who was born in 1918, exactly one hundred years ago.
Métis offers us a portrait of the cultural melting pot that is South Africa: from classical English musics to contemporary musics, by way of traditional Indian music and the most famous songs of emancipation.
