Introducing new audiences to centuries-old folk traditions is one of our endeavours at Magnetic Fields through Puqaar, our folk music stage.
The festival weekend is a chance to catch maestros of instruments and melodies unheard of in the modern world. This year, Puqaar will feature a snapshot of the dying artform of Pabuji Ki Phad, where wandering minstrels narrate tales of the great Pabuji in front of a religious scroll painting of folk deities – their portable shrine. Other performers include manganiyar Jameel Khan, Ustad Hakeem Khan on kamaicha and Male Khan on alghoza.
Hear songs that document history, and tales of love, passion and devotion performed by some of India’s little known folk stars.
