I Saw Myself - Dekha Apne Aap Ko

Mukhtiyar Ali is a Sufi and devotional music vocalist from the village of Pugal, in the desert state of Rajasthan, India. As a member of the Mirasi, a community of people widely known for their singing profession particularly in the arts of Sufi, devotional and wedding music, he inherited his vocal tradition from his father and elders. Today, Mukhtiyar is a highly versatile artist who has collaborated with many contemporary musicians such as Vasundhara Das and Mathias Duplessy.

In Dekha Apne Aap Ko, Mukhtiyar teams up with vocalist Shabnam Virmani and singer-writer Vipul Rikhi to showcase the literature of 15th century mystic poet, Kabir. Through song, narrative and multimedia projection, this performance also features their own works, some of which are the result of their years of travel and immersion in Indian oral traditions, as well as behind-the-scenes footages of this collaboration.
