Around Music / Écouter le Monde is a collection of 12 rare films which take you on a journey around the world, looking at a variety of cultures and music. 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 Fulani dances of Niger's Wodaabe people; witness the fusion of a New York jazzman and a Malian griot; follow a member of the Chimbu people in the highlands of Papua New Guinea as he searches for a bride by performing the extraordinary kuria gika ritual; 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 a 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.
