About the DVD

Traditional music of India that has never been heard or seen before.

The balladeer sings a song of the spluttering waterfalls of the river, of the rain, of the sand the song of the whispering forests.

Sings the balladeer sings of the golden fields of wheat the squeak of the rope at the well the splash of the washer man’s cloth the swish of the grass cutter’s blade the bang of the blacksmith’s hammer.

Sings the balladeer sings, sings at a pitch so high that it bursts the drums of all ears and only those can hear it who know the taste of jaggery of coriander, chilli and salt who know the song of the wheel as it grinds and grinds sings the balladeer sings he sings the colours of earth.
