return to rajasthan

In one single migratory wave, the original gypsies left Rajasthan, India, to wander the world 1500 years ago. Though nomadic, the pioneering gypsy tribes were wealthy musicians and traders, serving kings and nobles. Today the Rajasthani gypsies live in poverty and many of their descendants are disenfranchised by political systems. Return to Rajasthan is an ancient narrative inserted into a modern musical  conversation. Infusing the rumba of the world’s most successful band, the Gipsy Kings, with the raga of the Rajasthanis, Gipsy Sound Revolution is a call for liberation through music. Starting in mighty India, Return to Rajasthan holds hands across time, space and history taking gipsy culture to the world stage.
