The Lost Music of Rajasthan
Duration: 1 hour, 5 minutes
The arts series takes a road trip round the desert state of Rajasthan, meeting musicians whose existence is under threat from the new India. They meet Bhopa bards who recite four-night-long epics in front of huge hand-painted scrolls, saffron-clad, chillum-smoking sisters, cross-dressers and Gypsy dancers who literally bend over backwards to pick up rupees.
