“Mokoomba, from one riverbank to the another“ is the story of a band of six musicians from Zimbabwe who win a 3-month tour in Europe during the “Music Crossroads 2009” festival. Behind this victory offering financial perspectives they and their community never could have dreamt of, a big surprise is to put them to the test. The Mokoomba's epic deals with the relation between culture and sustainable development in Africa. Could this relation be an economic lever in the South countries without a form of reciprocity with the North countries?
