Pawa Film Forum: As Old as my Tongue – The Myth & Life of Bi-Kidude, Apr. 17 2015 @ Pawa 254

About
For this edition of #PAWAFilmForum, Pawa254 will screen the award winning documentary film ‘As Old As My Tongue – The Myth and Life of Bi Kidude’ by Screen Station Productions with Busara Promotions in celebration of her 2nd anniversary.

The Pawa254 Film Forum is committed to showcasing independently produced, often non- commercial work that has little opportunity of reaching the general public; highlighting social, political, cultural and historical realities. By featuring the voices and visions of truly independent media artists from Kenya and beyond, we aim to expose diverse audiences to a range of artistic expressions, cultural perspectives and critical inquiries.

SYNPOSIS
An intimate portrait of living legend Bi Kidude, probably the oldest singer on the world stage today. Her home island of Zanzibar has long been a meeting point for black African and Arabic influence. The island’s music is its most potent expression.

Bi Kidude beguiles audiences wherever she travels but domestically she continually courts controversy, her behaviour challenging perceptions of the role of women in a Muslim society.

As Old As My Tongue reveals the dramatic contrasts in the life of this iconic musician and features a classic soundtrack spanning one hundred years of Swahili music.
