This a very good documentary. Thanks for sharing here. Never knew about the Kalbeliyas before. What prompted you to document these people? Tell us about yourself a little more.

My name is Raphael Treza, i’m a 36 yrs old french filmmaker, i travel in India since 2003 and i’m glad to show the beauty of its culture and people, you can check more of my work at

I love the music of the gypsies of Rajasthan since im a kid, and i met them in 2010 to learn the kartals, the indian castanets, from this experience i decided to make a clip, then a documentary.

The movie became one of the most popular doc on youtube, and the soundtrack i composed got released by universal USA
