Imagine its midnight.The moon is shining right behind the sand dunes.The stars look down. You see the vast expanse of sands surrounding you. Sitting at a lower level, I see the dunes forming a horizon . Atop the dunes, lit by lanterns are silhouettes of singers singing an ode to the desert. Listen to their deep throated voices. The singer is Mehboob Khan, a renowned folk artist from Rajasthan who has travelled the world performing in front of an international audience. And here he is, courtesy Suryagarh , Jaisalmer, singing to us – a group of five people in the desert . You can listen to him here.
