AJAB MULAKAATEIN is an attempt by the Kabir Project and our friends to meet in wondrous ways despite the odds. Stumbling through virtual roadblocks, breaching borders and creating new digital intimacies on Zoom, we connected with diverse folk musicians of Kutch, Malwa, Rajasthan and Sindh to listen and share the gift of conversations and songs from the oral traditions. The first film in this series premieres at 11 am IST on Ajab Shahar YouTube channel. Songs survive in the singing, and folk artists are the life force that keeps them alive. The pandemic has left many of them without an occasion or an audience to sing to. Funds raised will be equally shared with artists we have reached out to during lockdown.
