This is the story of three different cultures meeting up together in the realm of ethno-jazz music. Georgian ethno-jazz trio The Shin, the Moldavian band Trigon, Owl’s Ethnographic Orchestra and Intars Busulis. Their breathtaking journey into the souls of Georgian, Latvian and Moldavian folk music and their creation of contemporary music is like cutting shining new gemstones from rough old treasures of folklore, opening hearts and transcending borders between nations and languages. In their travels together they become brothers and sisters in music. The scenery and melodies, voices and rhythms on the road they take may change but in the end it turns out to be the way home for all. The Way Home.
