"How many people have you met through music? There will always be times when music made connections with people who are even strangers. As been said in this documentary film With, music is togetherness. This documentary is beautiful and inspiring. It tracks the journey of a couple who kept on traveling and sharing their music and love for harmony. The couple showed that they are on the same page and their goals play beautiful music together. Watching With is so relaxing and calming. It is like it is telling me to slow and relax and enjoy beautiful music. This documentary sends a message that life is not always hectic and busy. It can be productive even if you are slowing things down. I love this documentary as it is a joy to the heart and speaks to the heart. Beautiful music, amazing cinematography and inspiring concept; this documentary is definitely a worthy watch".

"Globe-trotting through the years, a camera and a guitar
in my hands, discovering the world, family and friendship
through music, I wanted to share how togetherness and
slow-life can be. Music is not a sound or a song,
music is what embraces us all and gathers our souls.
Playing music is like talking all together at the same time
to create a sentence that no one had in mind before and
that’s the magic of togetherness. I had the chance to
meet and share moments with amazing friends of friends
of friends. Our songs are like a sound-picture of our
encounter and a hint on what happened then.
Playing together is a way to be anchored in the present
together. this movie is a poetic and musical tale shaping a
decade of road-trips, encounters, talks and dreams to
count a search of peace, togetherness and present."
Music is Togetherness
We met when we were 20 years old. it’s been 25 years now that we travel the world with our camera and guitare in hand. We love being on the road. after a while we lose track of our goals. just, driving and living the moment, begins to be it. We met amazing women and men while road tripping around the world. playing music was our way to meet and share with them. friends of friends of friends. Playing music is like talking all together at the same time to create a sentence that no one had in mind before. music is togetherness. music is love.
