Feel the endlessness of the night sky in the desert as you listen from the music of the Manganiyars and Langas from Divina Ensemble.

 

The Thar Desert in the western part of India has been a source of musical inspiration for two major inhabitant groups for many generations – the Manganiyars and Langas. The music of both are identified with a richness of depth and complexity attested by the remarkable vocal ornamentation. Led by Anwar Khan, one of the greatest voices of his generation; reinforced with haunting ragas, rousing vocals and innovative rhythms, the ensemble offers audiences traditional Rajasthani music of the Thar desert at its finest.
