Artbeat Africa brings together some of the best cultural reports and interviews by the Focus on Africa team from the last seven days. This week we meet Ethiopian film maker Rachel Samuel (pictured) who has made a documentary about an Ethiopian diva of the 50's and 60's whose behaviour shocked society at the time. A Nigerian artist explains how her work reflects the disappearance of many young girls in northern Nigeria that have gone unreported. Plus Zambian singer Namvula talks about her debut album Shiwezwa which has received high praise in the British media.
