Journey with Ms. K.I.A., a griot* from days of old, as she is teleported from the past into a modern cabaret. Weaving ritual, dance, theatre and song, Ms. K.I.A. mystically catapults her audience into a current reality that leaves spectators trying to catch their breaths, as they become part of a cultural revolution.
