From the CD

An inspiring story about one family keeping alive a folklore tradition in Rajasthan, in the face of many odds. Gopi Bhat’s ‘tamasha’ is ‘repertory, a blend of music, in classical style of dance and singing and narration. The three main ‘tamashas’ are titled Heer Ranjha, Jogi Jogan and Gopichand. This folk art form was patronized by rajas or kings. After abolition of monarchies, the art had to face bad days. The tremendous courage, determination and love for the traditional folk art displayed by the Bhat family, saved it from being relegated to oblivion. Gopi Bhat, whose performance is being shown here, has suffered because of lack of status in the society. He had to work as a ‘pujari’ in a temple for sustaining himself. But he kept his performance going. The special feature of this folk art is the use of classical music, to communicate with the common people. Shri Bhat has enthused his progeny with the love for this art and hopes that they will carry forward his work. Even at this age he is dedicated to his art.
