Living Cultures

1 Season, 13 Episodes

Some cultures are true treasures: music, theater, legends and dance are part of our heritage and give meaning to our lives. The oral cultures featured in this series are fragile; if their voices are silenced, the world will lose much of its spirit. If they are not transmitted to our children, they will disappear. Living Cultures recounts the stories of the people who fight to keep these precious traditions alive. Each day, they struggle to teach young people their knowledge and to perpetuate the fragile chain of transmission. Discover 13 of the most magnificent oral traditions in the world, all proclaimed Masterpieces of Human Heritage by UNESCO.
