Travels Through Song- Vipul Rikhi

Read Vipul Rikhi's beautifully crafted and heartfelt article on the Rajasthan Kabir Yatra, 2012. This year's Kabir Yatra was held in Rajasthan in and around Bikaner and was organised by Lokayan with the support of The Kabir Project. A seven day whirlwind of music, vichaar and masti, the Rajasthan Kabir Yatra featured 13 folk artists from around the country including some very special women folk singers from Rajasthan like Gavra Devi, Bhanwari Devi and Jamali Bai. This years Yatra also saw almost 200 odd urban yatris join us from both India and abroad! It was a magical journey into the heart of the deserts of Rajasthan wandering like jogis to the beat of the mystics.
