This film was last shown on 20 September 2012
This documentary is about the traditional musicians and storytellers of Rajasthan, a desert state in northwest India. The musicians have told their stories for over 2,000 years to their communities. The knowledge has never been written down, so it is instead passed down verbally from father to son. The traditions include a very sophisticated way of singing and playing various instruments. The music has a huge cultural heritage within the community. The songs and stories deal with a wide spectrum of subjects in life and nature. The topics range from the art of collecting water in the desert to songs about plants and animals. They also include ancient lovestories and tales of the past royal families. The documentary focuses on their traditional lifestyle in modern society. It is an inside view of the Rajasthan people and their incredible culture.
The screening will be introduced by Dr Saurabh Mishra, with a discussion following the film focusing on India's cast system.
