This beats MTV (c)rap!

Once at night I heard weird singing coming from a field from a far. It turned out to be a couple of Indian peasants going home from some local pub. I went to meet them and asked to sing for the camera. They were apparently under influence of alcohol or something else, but I was impressed by their voices and the style of their singing. My favourite bit of the video starts when the second guy starts singing using a body language similar to rappers (throwing fists into the camera sort of thing). at about 1:50min time line. A friend of mine, a Tamil guy who was with me, said that it’s a kind of folk song about life of common people. I asked them to sing in duet and the babas improvised pretty well. Refreshing stuff.
