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.

CYCLE SKIPPING WITH FIRE ROPE

I met this guy called Harekrishnan. He is quite famous in India for cycle skipping for long distances and even got in Indian Book of Records when he skipped for more then 100 miles non stop. Here’s a link from Indian newspaper covering his AIDS awareness stunt.

I suggested him to try it at night with a rope on fire and filmed it in a single take. It looked bizarre and beautiful at the same time. The image gets brighter when the fire gets lit.

We are currently working on some other stunts. If anyone wants to contact Harekrishnan or offer him a job, he is a cool guy and crazy enough to try anything. He lives in a village and currently doesn’t have internet access. But if you drop me a line, I will sure pass it to him.
