Angala Community: Soon

The police decide to swoop into Angala community and round up all the young men in a dragnet. At the heart of our story are two young women and two young men whose dreams of love, learning and earning are shattered by the police raid and its fall out. 

Angala Community is Chicoco Radio’s drama strand. We made series one with support from Amnesty International as part of their national Stop Torture campaign. 

This is a story full of music and the small joys of everyday life, as well as the violence of police and politicians, bullets and bulldozers and the devastation of flood and fire.

In the wake of the #EndSARS protests and their aftermath, this story is more painfully relevant than ever. We’ll be posting an episode each week. 

Here’s the signature tune. Tune in next week for episode 1! 

Researchers, activists, rappers, mappers, actors, audio engineers, writers, readers, reporters, filmmakers, singers, students, teachers, urban farmers, makers of the city yet to come.
