Okotécho guides the listener into a sonic world brimming with hope, aspiration, and lyricism found in the exceptional interlude between the Middle East, Arboriginal and the West. Under the artistic direction of composer Katia Makdissi-Warren, Okotécho explores mixed music and musical sounds through its own compositions.
| Pêcheurs de perles
The filmmaker Alain Saint-Hilaire and the composer Katia Makdissi-Warrren combine images and music to reconstruct the founding moments of the Gulf countries, from the Bedouin princes of the 1960s to the emirs who built the legendary Dubai today.
A tale that unveils the story of the home of the pearl fishermen, of these forgotten lands where ancestral memory and flashy Futurism shimmer. Pearl Fishers is inspired by khaliji rhythms and melodies (from the Gulf) ... Montrealers in the land of a thousand and one well ... to trace the history of a culture in transformation!
