In Val Badia, a Ladin valley in the province of Bolzano, hundreds of people are involved in music-making, which has an important social, educational and recreational role, also in terms of identity. In the film we see a comparison of four music groups in terms of performance and learning methods, repertoire and oral and written transmission of musical knowledge.
