Reviving the music that heals
WATCH: FULL FILM
Molam music is experiencing an unexpected and determined renaissance outside of its provincial origins, thanks to creative collectors and innovative festival promoters.
The sound is unlike anything most Western audiences have encountered, but it’s far from being classified as a World music.
In this film, the leaders of the revitalization of this traditional sound face an uphill battle to bring the genre into the 21st century while holding on to its ancient roots.
