Synopsis

The Txalaparta is a unique musical instrument although played by two people, the music emerging from the encounter belongs to neither of them, but to the fact of having met and exchanged dialogue. The film shows the desire of two musicians to convert the Txalaparta into a meeting point, not only between two beings, but between cultures. This quest drove the protagonists to travel to remoted places in search of sounds and voices. Each encounter is unique: a source of surprises and extraordinary experiences.
