Summary "Returning to Senufo country 40 years after his first encounter with balafon music, the filmmaker witnesses a musical event of startling impact. Six orchestras, playing simultaneously but independently, circle with the dancers around the deceased person, who is swathed in fabric. The subjective camerawork of this first-person documentary shows us the irresistible build-up in the musical and ritual intensity"--Container.
