Shashamane, 250 km south of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. It is here that ten talented youth try every day to pursue their dream: Music. Ace Bandaner, Tafari, Sammy, Asha Black, Sahara Benji, Rose, Rhyme Killah, True Warrior, Black Haze and Kilo D are the Youths of Shasha. The film-documentary narrates their stories, giving voice to their aspirations and their visions of life. “We don’t have a recording studio, a radio station and no chance of distribution”, says one of them, but the love for music and the need to express their talents give them the strength to go on and write their songs. The background of these stories is Shashamane: a land that in 1948 His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I donated to all the Africans in the Diaspora who wanted to return back to Africa. Since then, Shashamane has become an international icon and myth, a Heartland. Over the years, many Rastafarians have ‘repatriated’ from all over the world: from Japan to Sweden, from the Caribbean to Germany and the Americas. It is here that all these different cultures encountered with the ancient culture of Ethiopia. Thanks to the contribution of Donald “Flippins” Leach, Sydney Salmon and Ras Iby, the documentary analyzes the current state of the music industry in Ethiopia and attempts to propose solutions and promote the concept of ‘participation’. In line with this principle, the project was carried out with the direct collaboration of the “Youths”, who took part in the writing and production process of the entire film. Moreover, ‘Youths of Shasha’ is part of a larger project, featuring the production and release of a musical compilation recorded by the young artists with the technical equipment provided by the association Youths of the World (YOW) and through the superb support of many international Reggae singers, such as Bob Andy, Earl “Chinna” Smith, Tony Rebel, Kiddus I, Sizzla Kalonji, Capleton and many others. The main objective and priority of the project is to build the first school of music and the first recording studio in Shashamane, thus enabling the youth to develop and upgrade their musical and artistic talents, looking forward to a professional and promising future in music. The journey of the Youths in the minibus of Ras Tewelde, mastermind of the project, represents the metaphor of life running throughout the film: an artistic and educational journey, made of daily life and routine, enhanced by the flow of the dreams at early dawn in Shashamane and expectations for the future of ten young artists. When the movie ends, that’s where the real journey begins: destination is Dreams, final stop Everywhere.
