With a new format, AISSA is the first musical series in French-speaking Africa. Scenes sung and danced succeed each other to stage the daily life of young Aissa. Co-produced by A + and directed by Jean Roke Patoudem of Patou Films International, the AISSA series is an original idea of the Beninese Kodjo Houngbeme.
