THE FIRST of two pieces of qawwali music I filmed in Dapoli, Konkan, India at the BH hostel in 2006. Probably in a room after puja on an all ages retreat during a traditional Indian holiday. It is just as I filmed it. It could be a Sufi-Buddhist fusion though I don’t understand the words they are singing. However, the youthful, even intoxicated male energy comes over as clearly now as that time. By the way, virtually next door to the hostel was a two room bungalow belonging to Dr Ambedkar’s family.
