Conceived and directed by Roysten Abel, The Manganiyar Seduction brings together more than 40 singers and instrumentalists from the Rajasthani deserts performing traditional Manganiyar music in an astonishing audio-visual feast. The musicians are seated on the stage in a four-story bank of small lighted pods, each pod occupied by a single performer who is illuminated whenever his voice or playing joins the extended piece of music being performed. As the ensemble grows in number and the sound gathers momentum, a dramatic and astounding build-up of musical instruments and voices is created as three generations of the Manganiyar community take you into a world which is even beyond yours or their own.
