Kisumu chronicles the journey of an African musician. It is a 1980s far echo of African music noir, it tells the story musicians working in Kenya. It's also the story of ordinary men and women trying to live the Kenyan African dream. It's is a story of humble beginning, awkward adolescence and misdirected fumbling and miraculous accomplishment. Kisumu is a lavish and eclectic, encyclopaedic, deeply felt knowledge of music and pop culture.
