It only takes one voice to raise a nation.
Diamonds in the Rough chronicles the incredible journey of the hip-hop group, the Bataka Squad, who use hip-hop to spread awareness of their countries’ troubles, and to offer positive alternatives for the youth. As narrator of the film, Michael Franti of Spearhead guides us through an incredible journey from the riot-torn streets of Uganda, to the remote villages in the countryside and finally to the concrete jungle of the United States.
Babaluku and Saba Saba are the two remaining members of the Bataka Squad, Uganda’s first major hip hop group to rap in their native language, Luganda. We follow as Silas returns to his homeland to set up a charity foundation for young people living in Uganda’s ghettos, while Saba Saba concentrates on spreading their message to the international hip hop community. On the way we meet a host of other socially conscious hip hop artists from all over the world, that use the microphone as a platform for change.
Hip hop is the voice of a new generation uniting the young people of the world.
