ABOUT



“Terra Pesada” is the story of young heavy metal musicians in Mozambique, a former Portuguese slave colony, and their quest to make their voices heard. We follow them at home, at school, hanging out with their friends, talking about music, politics, HIV/AIDS, the wars, what their lives are like now, the difficulties they face, their hopes, dreams, ambitions, aspirations, and of course there are rehearsals and concerts. Today, 20 years after the peace accord was signed, Mozambique is ranked 184th out of 187 countries on the UN’s Human Development Index, yet it is considered by its Western donors to be one of Africa’s success stories. The fighting may have ended, but the struggle goes on.
