Offering a rare look at the small ethnic enclaves of Eurasia, this non-fiction survey observes the ancient musical traditions of five different indigenous folk communities throughout the continent. The film follows the Christian Molokans of the Caucasus, the Jewish Ashkenazim and Krymchaks of the Black Sea, the Muslim Bashkirs of the Ural Mountains, the Orthodox Cossacks of the Southern Steppe, and the Shamanistic Teleuts and Telenguits of Central Siberia. Taken together, the film speaks to music as the highest universal language.
