Topowa! – Never Give Up is the inspirational journey of 12 young musicians from some of the toughest slums in Uganda, to some of the biggest music stages in the world. It's a story of resilience and hope, carried along by a joyous, foot-stomping celebration of music and life. From the dusty dirt roads of the Katwe slum to the paved streets of London and the fields of Cheltenham Festival, we follow Julius, Sumayya, Tadeo, Gilbert, and the Brass For Africa band as they are welcomed into the UK for an experience that will transform their lives forever. Beautiful cinematography and an infectious love for music make this uplifting story a joy to watch.
