Follows renowned but low caste musicians from dusty villages to the castle of the Maharajah for the tenth RIFF festival.
The iconic arts series ‘Imagine’ 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.
