The Endless Journey brings together four musicians from two of Niger’s leading
internationally known music groups, Mamane Barka and Etran Finatawa. For the last six years both groups have been preoccupied with bringing the music and culture of their respective (and adopted) nomadic tribes to the world stage. But now there is a more urgent need to move from being cultural ambassadors
to being cultural activists. Each time they return to Niger it is more evident that traditions, and with them cultural identity, are being rapidly lost. The Endless Journey recounts their attempts to stem the haemorrhaging of Niger’s cultural heritage in a powerful music performance with images and film.
