PLATTLN IN UMTATA

Three musicians of the Bavarian tribe, well-known as „die Biermösl Blosn“, travel to South Africa with the whole kit and caboodle. They go on their musical adventure with an alp horn, a tuba, trumpets and 23 instruments more. A rhythmic ‘battle’ between the alp partisan and their black African challengers is held on street corners, in neighbourhood meetings and multi-purpose halls of the great and poor townships. With curiosity, pleasure and respect for the other people’s music enchanting performances and encounters full of touching moments and funny scenes develop.
