The DVD features rehearsals, interviews and the beautiful concert given at the Banlieues Bleues festival in March 2006. Anaïs Prosaïc has intelligently captured the subtleties of this formation, furthermore she gives information on the history of Ethiopian music. This film is a tribute to what jazz, blues and rock musicians owe to Africa.
