The Rhythm Project is a visual documentary told through the senses by the senses. It is the story of rhythm, the living force found in all things; breath, heartbeat, music, dance, language, and nature, down to the smallest vibrating particle.
The Rhythm Project is one of those ideas that begged to be realised. It’s been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. The ﬁrst real spark was ignited while working in war-torn Mostar, Sarajevo with a group of musicians, actors and clowns. I witnessed ﬁrst-hand the transformative power rhythm had for these traumatised children. As soon as they felt the beat of the drum, or started to dance or sing, their faces lit up.
After traveling to Brazil, Cuba, India and Africa I began to document and follow rhythm, it’s effect and the science behind it. The short ﬁlm ‘Foli’ is one of the results from our trip to Africa and can be seen on YouTube.
Getting into the spirit of things. Music is an every day part of life.
Timbalada: the newest and hippest thing in town. This band combines traditional percussive music as played by the well-known band Olodum with newer hip-hop and rap.
