Sami Yaffa in Colombia | Sound Tracker (featured)

The world-touring rock star and musician Sami Yaffa explores the music of our little blue planet floating in space. Sami will travel to locations where rhythm and melody are essential to the cultures and meet people whose identities are inseparable from music. He will document sceneries and soundscapes, smells and flavors, and habits and emotions all while meeting people who are given purpose by music - just like he is - although with very different backgrounds. Music is the only universal language — the richness and humanity of it all.
