Wongai: And we dance

Hanna Björk Valsdóttir

At a small dance studio in Reykjavík drummers and dancers from Guinea, West-Africa teach Icelandic women to move to the rhythm of the rich African culture of the homeland they left behind, in search of a better life in the Western world. But what is a better life?
