PINKNOISE presents The Dance Of The Diaspora

Folk music has always come from the village. But now, the city has its own folk music, too. We speak english when we’re polite. Our exclamation marks are in the mother tongue. The food on the table is continental. Before bed, it’s sanskrit prayers at night. This can happen only in India. Where the culture is ancient. The attitude is future.
