Piano To Zanskar

The story of the world’s highest-altitude piano delivery.

Piano To Zanskar follows 65-year-old London piano maker Desmond O’Keeffe as he endeavours to deliver a piano to Lingshed, a remote mountain village high up in the Indian Himalayas.

Desmond and his team make the trek from his piano repair shop in Camden Town, London to Zanskar, one of the most re- mote places on Earth, where Lingshed is situated.

Navigating dangerous mountain passes, wayward Sherpas and some of the most stunning scenery in the world, Desmond’s journey to Lingshed captures spiritual resilience, passion for music, the unrelenting progress of civilisation, and the beauty of nature.

If successful, the expedition will be the highest piano delivery in the world. More importantly, it will be the ultimate gesture of music’s universal power: to inspire strength and bring joy. Can they make it?

Piano To Zanskar features an original music score by Werner Herzog collaborator Ernst Reijseger (Cave of Forgotten Dreams).
