Shadow struck me with his vision: he is in it for the community, he is in it to give the camp a voice. Sounds cheesy? Think about it: Buduburam still has anywhere between 20 and 30,000 residents. Most have no family, and nothing to go back to in Liberia. Many were born in the camp and have never set foot in Liberia. At the same time, many have never really settled into Ghanaian society. The UN’s mandate ended years ago. So these people feel left out, forgotten. Shadow’s strength has been in uniting them, creating a sense of community in the camp and a new place for himself. Learn more about Shadow and his studio in this video shot by the University of Alberta, Canada, who are involved with Shadow and musicians on the camp.
