Karlon, born in Pedreira dos Húngaros (a slum in the outskirts of Lisbon) and a pioneer of Cape Verdean creole rap, runs away from the housing project to which he had been relocated.
Nights of vigil are spent under a sweltering tropical heat.
Among the sugarcanes, a murmur is heard. Karlon hasn't stopped singing.
"High Cities of Bone" is a probing and imaginative exploration of Karlon's memories, the institutional siege, and the submerged stories from a dark time.
