Shot very close to the musician community, the film ‘Singeli Movement: Greed for Speed’ depicts a scene of super-fast Tanzanian music that engages creators and fans of all ages and genders. Singeli music was born at the turn of the century in the Mburahati slums of Dar es Salaam, when Tanzania began to implement its first capitalist reforms after 40 years of building a socialist economy. The makers of Singles come from the first generation to grow up in this new reality. This film shows how ambition and dreams of fame blossom in artists who grew up in the clash between the altruism of past socialist times and the competitiveness of capitalist acceleration.

Jan Moss is a film director, DJ, activist, promotor, and a intermedia artists who mainly uses film, sculpture and sound. He is interested in the origin of dreams and ambitions, sustainable development, the cycles of self-regulation of nature, or the role of the sublime in conditioning social needs, e.g. the commodification of the experience of fear in nineteenth-century horror literature, i.e. the relation between the fog and the smog. He studied fine arts at the academies in Krakow, Oslo, and Malmö. Since 2018 he’s been closely collaborating with the Ugandan record label Nyege Nyege Tapes, creating music videos and a series of documentary films Nyege Nyege Tapes Tapes.
