MUSAFIR

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————– SYNOPSIS

Musafir est un groupe de musique folklorique qui a pour particularité de regrouper des musiciens de différentes castes et différentes religions.
Hameed Khan, tablaïste, partage sa vie entre Paris et Jaipur et sillonne le Rajasthan à la recherche des meilleurs musiciens. Il les prend sous son aile et les forme au « répertoire Musafir » qui harmonise en quelques sortes l’hétérogénéité des répertoires de chaque communauté.
A travers les Musafir, Hameed crée une nouvelle forme de musique, basée sur une culture ancienne et très riche : la musique folklorique du Rajasthan. Afin de rendre compte de ce lien fort, le film suit chacun des musiciens au sein de sa communauté.
Musafir signifie « nomade » et derrière ce mot se cache toute la philosophie du groupe : découvrir les autres à travers le voyage, en utilisant la musique comme un langage.

Musafir is the name given to a group of folk musicians from different castes and religions in Rajasthan, India.
Hameed Khan, a tabla player who divides his time between Paris and Jaipur, is constantly searching for the best musicians who he then takes under his wing and teaches them the Musafir repertoire. Each cast of musicians has its own repertoire, instruments and particular style. Hammed’s role is to harmonize and unite them all. The collaboration not only produces new music – unlike the traditional music most of the musicians play in their
communities – it produces new friendships – breaking through the social conflicts that plague India.
Musafir means « nomad. » This name represents the philosophy of the group: the
discovery of others through a journey in which music is the common language.
The documentary features the journey of the musical group through three main stages – their training session in Jaipur, the story of each musician’s life, and finally, the group’s tour of Europe.
