小道音乐 - Ethnomusicology from Southeast Asia

 "Small Path Music" - a 56min documentary by David A. Harris

In the hills and plateaus of Southeast Asia Laurent Jeanneau has found music which speaks to him like no other. Travelling to these hard-to-reach places, amongst people for whom the thread of tradition has not been broken, in search of new discoveries became his passion. A passion which has become his work and his life.

Small Path Music takes us travelling through remote northern Laos and Southern China with Laurent, and invites us into the world of the folk artists he explores. From shamanic rituals to love songs, historical epics to lamentations; his microphones capture his findings.
