The film explores the little known story of the legacy of the Africans who first arrived as slaves in the Spanish colonial region that would later become Bolivia. Traditional Saya songs were one way that Afro-Bolivians began sharing the stories of their ancestors and their culture, while demanding recognition as members of Bolivian society.--From the film's website.
