The Shukar Collective Project (2010)

76 min. - Documentary - - 16.12.2010

Synopsis: At night, the enthusiastic crowd gathered at the Uranus Garden (a former factory transformed into an open air cinema and music concerts precint) gives Shukar Collective a standing ovation. Shukar Collective play bear tamer music using spoons, wooden barrels or daraboukas, whilst a couple of DJ's add layer after layer of urban sound over this traditional music. It is this kind of eclectic environment that best describes what the documentary deals with: 'culture contact'.
