Synopsis

This is a coral, reflective and symphonic view about the human being connexion with the sky and land. A small town in the South of Europe has developed the «Muixeranga». This is a syncretic ritual that links the Hebrew, Christian and Arab roots, both Mediterranean and European. The spiritual strength of ancestors has survived despite the global modernity waking up the already forgotten inner strengths. The cants de batre by Pep Gimeno Botifarra, Ahmed Touzani and Miquel Gil, drive us to a far away world which is also hoped.
