Long live the dead!

“Long live the dead!” is a musical road movie set in northern Ghana. We follow Stevo Atambire, a young  Kologo musician, as he travels by motorbike through Fra-Fra country in northeastern Ghana to play at funerals.

Following tradition, he improvises songs about the life of the deceased. A powerful art form firmly rooted among the people.

It is Stevo’s personal mission to further spread his music and culture worldwide. The film aims to reinforce this mission by showing how important music and rituals can be for a community, both in good times and in bad.

The film is nominated for the Flemish UNESCO Price 2023 of the Afrika Filmfestival
