A rhythmic documentary that follows Academy Award winning Uruguayan musician Jorge Drexler on a 7-concert tour around Barcelona.  Known for infusing traditional Uruguayan music with ‘bossa nova’ and electronic compositions, Drexler captivates audiences as he performs onstage with various pedals at his feet, each emitting sounds recorded from the streets of Spain. Filmed predominantly in sultry black and white, the documentary gives insight into the inspired mind of this acclaimed South American singer as he performs impromptu with street artists, invites a processional band to play with him live, and performs songs written in his dressing room 10 seconds before arriving onstage.
