Music | Documentary | Female Director | Africa 

A vibrant look at the enthusiastic choir scene of Northern Tanzania. Director Julia I Peters takes us on a journey with three of the groups entering the annual church choir competition, to which there are usually around 1,500 choral groups from Lutherian Churches competing. Although the three choirs are from different backgrounds (rural, urban, and youth) and their styles differ greatly, they all share the same passion and enthusiasm for their music. Whether they are applying 21st-century influences and instrumentation to their songs, or retaining their Maasai and Gogo traditions, the colourful performances, together with the beautiful backdrop of the Tanzanian landscape, makes this film a delight for both eyes and ears.
