A journey around Lisbon’s suburbs through the lives of a handful of musicians establishing their place to exist in a city of complex identity struggles. Different generations and backgrounds meet, Angola to Sao Tome, Cabo Verde and Guine Bissau represented by old musicians and young producers.

Rita Maia (Portugal) is a London-based DJ and curator. DJ at Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide FM with a radio show, a club night set at Migrant Sounds, and a record bag travelling across the world in an incessant search for new music.
