Monsoon Merasi Magic

The Godrej India Culture Lab and Lok Kala Sagar Sanstha came together once again to present a very special performance by the visiting Merasi folk musicians from Rajasthan.

The last time they were here, they dazzled us with their story and mesmerized us with their talent and this time was no different. 

For 38 generations, the Merasi have composed, performed and maintained a vibrant, distinct folk music legacy that is on the verge of extinction due to India’s rapid modernization. They are essentially known as the ‘keepers of stories’ which flow from generation to generation. The group has some of the most enthusiastic singers of all age groups who dance and play a variety of instruments that completely enthrall the audience.

They are artists who can perform for hours together with songs that weave the magic of the Rajasthani traditions and culture and keep the audience asking for more!
