Title Review

Rajasthan is known for its romantic past that lingers in its forts, palaces, and legends of unrivalled heroism and chivalry. And then, (perhaps) paradoxically, its heart throbs in its vibrating rhythms. Music here is the way of life and the musical experience gives meaning to Rajasthanis'' existence. With a bonanza of exquisite, hugely fascinating photographs, the book explores the origins of various clans of Rajasthani musicians, with special focus on the development and sustained popularity of its folk music, musical instruments, and even its dance forms and puppetry.

Tripti Pandey trains folk artists, has presented/designed performances: both in India and abroad, and has written for a host of publications on the subject.
