This special episode in English is a live recording with audience from April 30th 2024 at Empire Bio in Copenhagen.

We hope this can contribute to expanding the space for more of you to feel included in participating in spreading awareness about Sudan.


We were joined by Abdalla Eltayeb and Nils Carstensen, who were invited for to help unfold the themes of the documentary, as well as, to give us insight on both the current situation in Sudan, and and how we all can contribute in aiding the local population in the country who are suffering under the current disastrous humanitarian conditions.

GIDAM, Drums of Protest in Khartoum" is a short documentary from 2021. It explores the role of music, particularly the drumming tradition known as "Gidam," in the protests and social movements in Khartoum, the capital city of Sudan. The documentary delves into how music and rhythm have been central to the expression of dissent, resistance, and identity among the people of Sudan, especially during periods of political upheaval and social change. It examines the cultural significance of Gidam drumming and its evolution as a tool for activism and mobilization within Sudanese society.


Gidam (means = ‘‘all the way’) follows a young woman who, like many other Sudanese, takes to the streets to demand the departure of the military government. The protagonist (remaining nameless for security reasons) takes to the streets, animating the protests with the revolutionary power of her djembe. Through her music she feels the spiritual power of the beat and the intimate connection with protestors.


Thank you to everyone who took time to attend the event and share their questions and reflections with us.

Special thanks to Henrik Neumann from Empire Bio, and the duo behind the documentary, Arthur Larie & Bastien Mass, for allowing us to screen 'Gidam'.
