Pa Salieu Travels Back To His Origins In ‘The Return Of An Afrikan Rebel’ Documentary
8 Apr 2022
The Coventry based star is unapologetically returning to the essence of his being in brand-new ‘The Return Of An Afrikan Rebel’ mini documentary. Following Pa Salieu’s ‘Afrikan Rebel’ EP and last year’s UK tour that championed the militant yet afrocentric sound, we’re now able to access Pa’s identity from a new angle.
Tayo Yusuff directs the journey back to the grounds of his childhood in Gambia and we witness the reconnection between him and a culture he so boldly represents first-hand.
“I will forever be grateful to my SoundCloud family for helping make this trip happen. For reasons beyond my control, I’ve been unable to return to The Gambia since I came back to the UK as a child,” says Pa Salieu. “This trip provided a chance to reconnect with family I haven’t seen for years, visit the burial site of my grandparents for the first time, collaborate with incredible local talent and perform in front of over 30,000 people. A moment I will never ever forget. I’m so proud of my country and culture and hope this film gives a small insight into the beauty and soul of The Gambia.”
