"As this magnificent documentary about South African music shows, protest songs amounted to weapons of war for a desperate people who needed to sing so they wouldn't weep."

With an uplifting mood that celebrates the victory of black South Africans who fought against Apartheid, AMANDLA shows how music and song played an essential role in the fight for freedom. The film focuses on the important spiritual sustenance that freedom music played in the long road to a free South Africa.
