Abstract:'El Gusto' is the story of a group of musicians who were separated by history over 50 years ago and today have been reunited to share once again their common passion: Chaabi music, a mixture of Andalusian, Berber and Flamenco music. When the filmmaker saw in an Algerian mirror shop the faded photographs of a group of musicians playing Chaabi music in a 1940s class at the Conservatory of Algiers, she embarked on a journey to reunite these lost friends. Now between the ages of 70 and 100, living in Algeria and abroad, Jewish and Muslim, well off and poor, thanks to Bousbia's passion and unrelenting work, the members of 'El Gusto' found each other again and rediscovered through their infectious music their own joie de vivre.
