The Langas live in the villages of the great Thar Desert in western India. Barnava is a magical village, every home here reverberates to the sound of music. Melody and rhythm are the heart and soul of langa life. Music is such an intrinsic part of Langa life that it might be true to say that 'Langa' children sing before they speak. They earn their livelihood by music and song singing at the home of their patrons or 'Jujmans'. As years passed by langas have moved to neighboring towns of Jodhpur and Jaisalmer. Langa music is the best of Indian classical, folk, Sufi and devotional styles. The Langas have presented a new genre of music without any formal training and with the gift for improvisation. Their tremendous zest for life their delight in their music which forms and instant rapport with listeners.
