Synopsis:

At night, the enthusiastic crowd gathered at the Uranus Garden (a former factory transformed into an open air cinema and music concerts precint) gives Shukar Collective a standing ovation. Shukar Collective play bear tamer music using spoons, wooden barrels or daraboukas, whilst a couple of DJs add layer after layer of urban sound over this traditional music. It is this kind of eclectic environment that best describes what the documentary deals with: „culture contact”.
