This documentary adopts an exploratory, meditative, and poetic approach to the meeting of outstanding traditional musicians from around the world at Lavyrintho, a series of workshops, discussions and events organized in the village of Houdetsi on Crete by Ross Daly, himself a musician of international renown. The musicians’ teaching, their contact with students in the workshops, and the dialogue between traditional musical idioms and instruments from various Mediterranean cultures (Europe, Asia, Africa) all reveal the amazing pluralism of world music, as well as the triumph of difference accepted, of meaningful communication, and creative coexistence. The documentary is not an all-inclusive showcase of world musical traditions, nor a flashy juxtaposition of exotic instruments and musical traditions. It is a journey that, free of ostentation and quaintness, lauds music’s global dimension, its resistance to homogenization and the entertainment industry, and its respect for difference, for the world’s great musical traditions all owe their riches to interaction between historic civilizations; of course, it is also a journey that simultaneously bolsters up all that we have in common.
