After 18 years, Pa Salieu finally returned to The Gambia to visit his family and the country that gave him his essence and his energy. "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. 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."_Pa Salieu. Shot in The Gambia, December 2021. Commissioned by Soundcloud.
