The film follows Kouyate's career, starting from the childhood experience of his favorite entertainments being replaced by French settlers' formal theatre, through early acting work in Burkina Faso, to Kouyate's eventual arrival in French theatre. Moving with Kouyaté through a number of very different cultures, the film demonstrates Kouyaté's long-standing efforts to share the indigenous arts and heritage of West Africa, including his founding of "The Griot's voice" acting company in France and the Mandeka Theatre in Bamako, Mali

Names live nowhere( Visual )

5 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in French and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presented in the style of a documentary, the film's title comes from a Senegalese proverb, and points to the circumstance of the individual spirit no matter the place. Starting from the back alleys of Dakar, a travelling griot (a West African term for a performer of local traditions, customs, and histories) tells tales of emigrant Africans he knew and subsequently sees during a trip to Belgium. As the griot compares their lives with the lives of those they had left behind, all concerned face the question of whether personally-held traditions and beliefs can survive in unfamiliar places, far away from those who would keep them alive. Real-life griot Sotigui Kouyaté plays the films' storyteller, interpreting the role through his personal knowledge of the art form
