The film tells the story of three groups of Sufi music, Mediterranean fusion and rap, who accept the challenge of the ethnographer-filmmaker of producing each one a videoclip. Not a conventional one, but an auto-reflexive, ethnographically based music video: an audiovisual product which is the result of several collaborative and creative sessions, and whose production is an occasion for exploring the relation the bands have with the place where they live and with the echoes that its Andalusí past has left. Trying to translate their musical worlds into moving images, Al Firdaus, Darash and Pablo López deal with the reflections of Al Ándalus in contemporary Andalusia.
