  17. I can't see a scene like this one and not be reminded of the early part of Banaras - A Mystic Love Story.

    They look quite young to be on the way to mastering Hindustani Classical. To a Western ear at least, that's pretty complex music.

    And it's good to see them keeping the form alive for this generation and the next.
