Equal parts rock concert, global music performance and dazzling theatrical experience, The Manganiyar Seduction is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that creates a rapturous union between the traditional music of the Manganiyars (a caste of singers and instrumentalists from Rajasthan in northern India) and the visual seduction of Amsterdam’s red light district. Conceived by Indian director Roysten Abel, this seduction of the spirit begins quietly with a solitary desert fiddle, but builds to an ecstatic eruption of sound, light and color, as the Manganiyar community takes audiences into and beyond their world.
"… It is easy to accept this invitation into another culture from such spirited, visibly pleased performers." - Irish Examiner
