What happens to the music of a people when they are displaced from their homeland? That is the question we aimed to answer with this self-funded documentary film project.

I spent two months with a music researcher and a videographer—meeting local musicians from the Karen hill tribe, hearing their stories, and documenting them through photo and video. The result is four short films featuring four Karen musicians, and an accompanying site where readers can learn more about the cultural context of each story.

Visit the site.
