We begin our story in modern-day Los Angeles on stage with Sitano, a famous rapper. He finishes his show and is headed backstage just like every other night, completely unaware that his estranged grandfather has finally found him after two and a half decades in hiding. Sitano initially resists this reunion, but changes his mind after hearing the first song his grandfather shares with him is about his mother, Moja.
Beginning in the 1800’s and continuing to present day, The Moja Saga follows one family over seven generations, introducing each character at their utmost vulnerable.
The heart and soul of the MOJA project can be heard in the music. Using the power of storytelling and over 500 contributors, we delve into Africa’s influence on American music.
