-OF GUITARS AND MEN (11 MIN) -WE ARE GOING TO RECORD (11 MIN)

Two old men sing and accompany themselves on an indigenous kind of guitar that is unique to the Lambayeque highlands. In between songs, they tell us about their youth, and how their passion for music is inseparable from their passion for women. Here music is not a cultural "product" that can be clinically isolated in a studio, but is revealed as inseparable from a chaotic continuum of alcohol, seduction, sexuality, and laughter. Men and women wait in silence for something to happen. A solitary engineer with a laptop computer (surrounded by anthropologists, native assistants and casual onlookers) communes with the unseen gods of stereo recording. Outtakes from the recording of a CD of traditional songs and music. Gestures of discomfort and generosity. Protocols for the collision of different cultures.
