The Manganiyar Seduction

At the Attakkalari festival last month, I got to watch the brilliant ‘Manganiyar Seduction’…it was an absolutely mind-blowing musical performance…like I had never seen or imagined.

The long traffic jams we endured en route to the venue were worth it!

The troupe hails from the state of Rajasthan in India & have dazzled audiences around the world – if they perform in your city, don’t miss it!

Ghazal – Jagjit Singh

This song is from the Hindi movie Arth.

Written by Kaifi Azmi & sung by Jagjit Singh, one of India’s most famous Ghazal singers.

Tum itna jo muskura rahe ho

The gist of the song is a man singing to his beloved –

You are smiling so much

What is the sorrow that you are hiding behind this smile?

Tears in your eyes and a smile on your lips…
