Song of the Dunes
The Search for the Original GypsiesStreaming Video - 2011
Tribes of musicians have lived in the Thar Desert along the India-Pakistan border for a thousand years. Song of the Dunes shines a light on the desperately hard lives of "Untouchable" caste musicians in India's Rajasthan state today. Over the centuries, the ancestors of these humble musicians have performed in the region's royal courts. Today, Rajasthan's traditional musicians play for tourists while struggling to hold on to their homes in the face of road-building projects and luxury developments. The film features His Highness Gaj Singh II, Maharaja of Jodhpur.
