The Hushed Music

  • Argentina
Audio Tracks 

Diego and David are the only two monks of byzantine rite in South America. They live in an isolated area of Argentina. Painting icons, baking their own bread, translation of sacred text and the singing of byzantine liturgy are their daily life activities, surrounded by the hushed music of the landscape.
