The Manganiyar Seduction | Sufi Seduction

The Manganiyar Seduction begins in almost complete darkness -- light bulbs faintly illuminate 36 human-sized rectangular boxes on a large four-tier set. Then the sound of a khamacha, an Indian stringed instrument, breaks the silence. Slowly, lights come up on one of the boxes to reveal the musician sitting cross-legged, dressed in white with an orange turban.

The Manganiyar Seduction are currently playing at the Lincoln Center, New York.
