      Madjuba: Quest for the Talisman

      Mozambique's first adventure-fantasy serial radio drama will soon be hitting
      the airwaves. Madjuba: Quest for the Talisman is an action-packed 13-part
      radio drama available in Portuguese, Changaan, and Sena, initiated by UNESCO
      with support from SIDA, produced by CMFD (Community Media for Development)
      Productions.

      Follow the tale of a community that gathers nightly around the fire to hear
      a wise storyteller weave a tale of adventure and fantasy. Little do they
      know that the magic of the story has transported their stubborn neighbor
      Arlindo to a far off fantasy world where he has become the unwitting
      long-awaited hero, Chamwari. As Chamwari seeks the talisman that will
      transform the land, the village listeners realise that they too have the
      power to speak up and help make the changes in their community they want to
      see.

      Over the course of the story the hero, along with his allies, travel though
      different lands, each with a task or problem to overcome related to key
      governance issues: accountability/ transparency, civic participation and the
      need for a strong civil society, freedom of expression, and political
      intolerance. The large-scale production involved over 50 local actors and
      recordings took place in Maputo and Beira. The script was drafted by
      talented scriptwriter Evaristo Abreu, who has over 25 years experience in
      the field of drama.
