Journey to Lasta

2006 NR

After struggling to spread their brand of Ethiopian reggae to the L.A. music scene, guitarist Kirubel and drummer Terefi get a boost from the arrival of Kirubel's childhood buddy Tsegaye, who becomes the band's charismatic new front man. But standing in their way are a scheming promoter and Kirubel's petulant girlfriend. The main actors, also members of the Ethiopian band Lasta Sound, bring all their talents to bear on this winning musical indie.
