The barn swallow crosses oceans and continents every year to nest and breed. Present in each continent, in less than 30 years has adapted its cycles and migratory habits in such a way that today, stimulated by the expansion of urban areas, can be seen increasingly nesting under bridges and houses in Buenos Aires and other cities of Argentina. Swallow migration refers to the temporary and repetitive migration of stationary workers traveling from the south of the continent to work on farms in the US and Canada, isolated from the communities where they live, without any integration. The sound of the Aymara tarka played by the Argentine musician and composer Jorge Vasquez and the electronica interpreted by Andrés Salas, speak of adaptation, evolution and collaboration that does not know border lines. The images react to the music in real time.
