Mathias Duplessy from France started working with Sufi Indian singer Mir Mukhtiyar Ali six years ago and soon realized they had a common language in music. They evolved a style of their own, which was inspired by Rajasthani folk, flamenco, blues, reggae, African, Japanese and Mongolian music.
This event was in collaboration with the Institut Français Inde, the French Embassy in India and Shanti Travel.com.
