The film by Robert Peak takes the viewer on a musical journey through Morocco’s south, from the coastal walled city of Essaouira, to Sidi Ifni, where men living in caves while away their free time playing music, to the High Atlas town of Tafraoute, where music happens in basements, markets and the middle of the wilderness. The journey exposes the daily existence of the people in the divergent regions by taking the viewer through the streets as the camera travels to each musical encounter. Some of the musicians are professional, some play purely for their own gratification, but all manifest the rich musical and cultural heritage of Morocco.
