Prix de la Sacem à Lussas - 2007 Prix du Meilleur Reportage au Festival de Montréal - 2007

Cairo, Alexandria, Tel Aviv, Beirut, Damascus, Aleppo, Palmyra... In a troubled world, these cities share a common inheritance, that of classical Arab music. Florence leaves Paris for the Middle East to discover an unknown and hidden part of her past. Her journey and quest are transformed by the people that she meets along the way, musicians mainly, who are also poets and visionaries of this history of the Middle East that they have carried and passed on in the sound of their voices, the melodies of their songs and the rhythm of their hands.
