This 2011 film tells the story of Sister Fa, a tribalSenegalese singer and activist on the rise. The first successful female rapper in Dakar’s fiercely competitive hip hop scene, Sister Fa brought women’s stories to the hip hop stage. Music and activism share the focus as she tours southern Senegal in 2010, and gets young people talking and singing about an issue - female genital mutilation - that had been completely taboo. Sarabah is a portrait of an artist as activist whose extraordinary resilience, passion and creativity will inspire you.
