This documentary collection of rare footage captures many of Bob Brozman’s global adventures with music and musicians, spanning over 30 years and dozens of countries.



Bob is a fiercely independent and prolific artist whose unusual career has been driven by a love of guitar music, anthropology, and human interaction with musicians around the world. Motivated by musical and intellectual curiosity, Bob has spent his life creating numerous collaborations while maintaining a full-time international touring schedule.

PAR AVION includes scenes from field recordings, spontaneous interactions and jam sessions, plus rare concert footage with artists from Hawaii, Réunion Island, Okinawa, Guinea, France, Canada, Australia, India, England, and Papua New Guinea.

See Bob’s open-ended artistic progression from early blues and jazz to island and world music – including footage from Bob’s early years in California from 1978-84; his early work in Hawaii in the mid-1980s; and the 1988 recording sessions with the legendary Tau Moe family. This early footage is followed by subsequent concerts, collaborations and interviews from 1990 to 2010.

PAR AVION is an intimate and stimulating view of one of the world’s great musical ambassadors, as he continues a life-long adventure in music.
