El Gusto

73 year old Algerian guitarist Mustafa Tahmi is late for a reunion. As his car winds through the intricate streets of the Algerian capital, Tahmi takes us on a journey about the intimate story of the music class of his youth, a group of Muslim and Jewish men from the Casbah. They are musicians who studied and performed together before the political and religious turmoil of Algeria's War of Independence tore their close friendships apart.Almost 50 years later, Tahmi's old classmates are being reunited for an historic concert in Marseille. As Tahmi and his friends share with us their extraordinary memories, their personal tragedies and their neverabandoned musical dreams, we learn that their love of Chaabi music has forged a bond that can never be torn apart.
