United People of Adventure
This month will see the release of a new documentary feature that my friends over at Touratech have been making over the past months. Initiated by Herbert and Ramona Schwarz, the non-profit project United People of Adventure gathered 6 experienced touring riders from 6 continents for an epic journey across Madagascar. Along the way, they encountered treacherous weather conditions, stunning landscapes, and inspiring people – such as the caretakers at the Orphanage of Antalaha, which is the main beneficiary of all proceeds from DVD and book sales among other aid projects in the region.
I not only had the pleasure to write the music for the film, but also got to meet and hang out with the adventurers when they reunited at Touratech’s Travel Event in June 2016, which was a blast. (Though driving my Civic to a gathering of 12,000 motorcycle aficionados conjured up the old adage of bringing a knife to a gun fight.)
The film is directed by Wolfgang Danner and will be out and available to order from the Touratech website very soon. In the meantime, check out the United People of Adventure Website to find out more about the project, or watch the video diaries that the team released over the course of their trip.
