My short first stay in Delhi ended with a concert of Sufi devotional music at the Nizamuddin Dharba, a muslim community South of the city. I was already familar with sufi chants from recordings by the inimitable Nusrat Alli Khan, one of the greatest singers of the twentieth century, bar none.

In some ways this is a conventional set - no fancy angles, mostly shot close to the action from a sitting position, so I have no idea how this is going to be received. What I tried to convey though, is the intensity of the singing, the spiritual passion that comes through the performances by these local musicians.

This project is dedicated to my friend Sohrab who almost ended up joining me that evening but was otherwise engaged.
