"Âabide L’Kadia" highlights transformative forces that operate in social situations. It focuses on specific contexts driven by Harratines in Mauritania: the Adebayes, mobile villages made up of a civilization of maroons fleeing slavery, and the Maddaha, unofficial groups of slaves who create emancipation stories through song. The project emphasizes song as a space to reclaim one's own identity and histories.
