Find out how a young Congolese woman experiences her first ritual; hear the singing and playful voices of old pipers in the Calabria mountains; discover the breath-taking Fulani dances of Niger’s Wodaabe folks; witness the unlikely fusion of a New-York jazzman and a Malian griot and even follow a musician’s adventures in Namibia!

From nomadic areas of the African Sahel to the isolated countrysides of Europe; from ancient Romanian rural homes to the dense African metropolis; from the Bamako recording studios to the backstage proceedings of a Parisian theatre, these diverse films are bursting with music, featuring people from all different walks of life with fascinating stories to tell.
