That was in the early 2000's, before success came. At the time, Hindi Zahra and Fatoumata Diawara often appeared at the Olympic Café, a classic venue for new music, in the Paris district of 'La Goutte d'Or'. The two singers soon made a name for themselves, building bridges between cultures and making modern Africa shine in the world. Today, they revisit their early days, their friendship bringing together inventive folk music and soul. Recorded on 2017 19th March at the Pôle musical d'Orgemont, Epinay-sur-Seine, as part of the 'Banlieues Bleues' Festival; TV Director, Laurent Hasse (58 min)
