The „Hambana Sound Company“ is a troupe made up of 12 musicians and singers, gathered from all over Namibia, Zimbabwe, Angola, Switzerland and Russia. 12 very different outlooks journey through a country that is in the process of reinventing itself from scratch: Namibia, former German Southwest Africa.
The common search for the deeper sources of music becomes a testing experience for each individual, taking them to the edge at times. Encounters with local music groups in remote provinces trigger a range of emotions – mesmerizing and euphoric as well as sad.
NAMIBIA CROSSINGS takes a trip through a country of archaic beauty and bizarre contradictions – like an echo on the polyphonic soul-landscapes made up of each individual’s highs and lows.
