Synopsis: ‘‘Water Drums, An Ancestral Encounter’’ is a documentary film that shows the strength of the African roots in the Venezuelan musical manifestations. The history of the Afro descendants Venezuelans is set up in the film when the central character finds the ‘water drums’ , a peculiar and stunning musical expression of the region of Barlovento. The aquatic chimes from the water drums will become the medium from our history that will come across two continents, Africa and America, to bring them together.Long distances become close when the roots are strong enough to stumble upon time.
