Koi Sunta Hai: Journeys with Kumar & Kabir (Someone is Listening)| 1hr : 36mins
Director: Shabnam Virmani | Producer: Srishti
Focus Years: 2008 | Country: India
Interweaving the folk music traditions of the mystic poet Kabir with the life and music of the late Indian classical singer Kumar Gandharva, this film searches for that elusive sound, that "jhini si awaaz", that Kabir urges us to hear. Where does it resonate, that subtle sound? Journeying between folk and classical, oral and written, rural and urban expressions of this 15th century mystic poet of north India, the film finds moments of both continuity and rupture between these disparate worlds.
