Synopsis

 

Musical-anthropological documentary without dialogue or narrator: music speaks for itself. A trip through the roots of flamenco to its modern day fusions with styles such as jazz, blues and Afro-Cuban music. Shot in different countries (Spain, Cuba, US, Nicaragua, Germany, Russia...) with flamenco guitar as main character and with the participation of world renowned artists such as the guitarist Antón Jiménez (Ciudad de Barcelona Award), dancer Lola Greco (National Dance Award 2009), legendary New York trumpet and conga player Jerry González (6 times Grammy nominated), blues-flamenco genius Raimundo Amador, flautist Jorge Pardo (Best European Jazz Musician 2013), bassist Javier Colina, flamenco singer Rafita Jiménez, Russian accordionist Oleg Nehls, harmonicist Antonio Serrano… and the special collaboration of the famous guitar maker Mariano Conde.

Production by filmmaker Andrea Zapata-Girau and flamenco guitarist and composer Antón Jiménez and sound design by Goya Winners (Spanish Academy Awards) Pelayo Gutiérrez and Nacho Royo-Villanova. An absolute delight for the eyes and the ears.
