“Jota” comes from the Arabic verb “Chotar”, that means to jump. But the Jota is much more than mere jumping, it’s a unique rhythm, cheerful and contagious that has been perfected over the years. Nowadays, many dance academies are devoted to teaching the Jota, but… how is it evolving? La Jota is a musical film that gathers the best existing material on this subject, leaving a visual document of artists of past and present; orthodoxy and heterodoxy; songs and rhythms already considered classics along with others that are still to come. It is a film that reflects the diverse range of the Jota.
