Ti-Georges is a Guinean musician who talks about his passion for his drums, for the rhythms of his captivating music, and their importance in the social and religious life of his people. We see T-Georges practicing, giving lessons and organizing a show featuring traditional dance, which we see at the end of the video. Ti-Georges also plays jazz in an ensemble with musicians from various backgrounds. One particularly successful image is of Ti-Georges and a friend walking in the streets of Montréal in winter, in silence... The rhythm of the drums returns slowly, bringing a little of the warmth of Ti-Georges’ home into this land of winter and cold.
The quality of this video varies due to older technologies and image degradation.
