A documentary about the lives of Langas who live in the villages of the great Thar Desert in western India. 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 and the delight in their music is what is portrayed in this documentary.
