A young, struggling Nigerian woman turns a chance encounter into a new life

Partially blinded by an unknown illness at 3 and sent out to hawk vegetables on the streets of Kano in Nigeria at 9, Aisha Sani Abdullahi grew up with the odds stacked against her. So when a woman at her mosque began offering knitting lessons, Aisha knew she could not let the opportunity slip through her fingers. A story of empowerment and unlikely salvation, Aisha’s Song uses sounds from the young woman’s environment to create a vibrant, organic soundscape that transforms the cacophony of the Kano streets into a captivating melody.

Director and Producer: Orlando von Einsiedel
