The music for the album was recorded live — and entirely acoustic — to accompany the film, which was directed by Klaus Tontine.

To create their energetic, rootsy sound, Garage A Trois uses vibraphone (Mike Dillon); eight-string guitar (Charlie Hunter); drums (Stanton Moore) and a saxophone (Skerik).

The results, on Outre Mer and elsewhere, layer grooves upon one another, and reference roots music not only of America, but of Africa and points beyond.
