A few words about the project

Passionated by traditional music and travel, we carried out a mountain bike trip of twelve months from october 2002 to october 2003. We were going around the world in search of encounters, tokens and messages of hope.

A trip based on statements as we made a documentary film concerning all the different cultures we met. All along this trip, we recorded our feelings, thoughts and impressions in travel diaries (published in french only) and we kept up a correspondence with two groups of young people from the school of Cornimont and La Bresse. After our return, some ateliers based on world music discovery (open to all) were be organised and some conferences based upon the documentary film realized.

Here is the list of countries we have been travelling through:
France, Tunisia, Egypt, India, Nepal, Thaïland, Cambodia, Vietnam, China, Mongolia and Russia.

“Music is a volatile staff. […]. Traditional music, orally transmitted from generation to generation, is the first victim of this property. Saving this volatile patrimony by travelling the world, that is the objective”.
