    • Synopsis
    • Parlez-vous Musique?
      Two sets of brothers, opposites both in personality and politics, take us through their island's neighborhoods for an up-close look at live island music and the wide range of people creating it.
      "The Twins", two notoriously wild, storytelling construction workers who play accordion and saxophone take us into the windblown eastward side. The island president and his senator brother, passionate guitarists, take us through the westward side and the capital. With these four and a brilliant Afro-Caribbean taxi driver we go behind closed doors into living rooms, onto back porches, out to secluded beaches, large scale festivals and small village fetes for a look at what genuine Caribbean music is all about in the French West Indies.
      The lush tropical landscape, an attractive and humorous female French ethnomusicologist, a handsome island pop star, and a large group of young, black, loud traditional drummers create an irresistible ambiance.
