Here We Move, Here We Groove
Former Yugoslavian refugee turned musician Robert Soko journeys through Europe in search of connections to the music of the new generation of refugees.
Robert Soko knows that you have to move to survive. Fled from the war in Yugoslavia as a teenager, he used Western music and electrifying Balkan rhythms to mix cultures, and became a famous Balkan Beats DJ in Europe. As a reaction to all the changes in the world and out of a need for inspiration, Soko drives his taxi in search for new migrants to mix with; musicians who have left their home and family behind them. The encounters break musical boundaries and reveal the changed identity of Europe.
