When the Slave boats docked in America, Brazil, Cuba and the Caribbean's, hundreds of cultures, traditions, and religions landed with Africans, but only one remains prominent till date in the new world, the culture of the Yoruba's.
Bigger Than Africa Documentary follows the journey of these Africans from the point of no returns in West Africa to the final destinations. Shot in six different countries with research and interviews coming from around the world, this film took us on a journey to Brazil, United States, Cuba, Trinidad & Tobago and where it all began, West Africa.
