Deserts of Rajasthan the most moving expanse of land in India. A land from where the rain gods turned their faces away many eras ago, gradually letting it thirst and pine into arid dryness. A land peopled by proud, valorous, robust folk, who for a thousand years fought the dryness within the land and the formidable invaders form the western horizons. A land of formidable fortresses, a land of sacrifice, loneliness. A land where the women protected their honor by burning themselves en masse rather than fall prey to the hands of conquerors. Where the winds whistle in the cold nights, Making the moonlight quiver.

The vastness and the poignant pain of Rajsthan finds arresting expression in its music. The wailing cadences of the songs of Rajsthan echo within the gigantic walls of the fortresses and across the endless dunes of sand as the camels wearily trudge towards a distant horizon. Ustatd Zakir Hussain is the greatest percussionist and percussion creative composer the world has seen. For him the tabla is not a drum. It is his own body, through which he breathes Prana, Bhava, Viraha, Ananda and Bhakti. The Master Brings to listeners a selection of Portraits of the moods of Rajasthan.
