Othmar Schmiderer accompanies five artists on their journeys back home after successfully performing in Europe. Due to their impressive presence cultural and social spaces are widely opened in Ghana, Gambia, Côte d’Ivoire, Senegal and Congo. We see artists with their families, among their friends and with cheering fans. The performances in Europe are economically necessary, but their emotional identities always remain connected to their homes.
