Popular culture among Franco-Comorians in Marseilles is viewed through the lens of artists who are on the one hand outsiders with regard to the “Comorian community”, and on the other hand contributing to the creation of “Comoria” in the sense of a translocal and transcultural space. Two musicians, Cheikh and Chaharani, who founded the group „Afropa“ which plays Afro-folk in Shingazidja and French, are at the center of this music documentary which stars also slam artist Ahamada Smis and others.
