From the CD

Bhil, the Adivasis of Southern Rajasthan, are known for their creative imagination and interesting belief systems. They live under the splendor of nature, with blue sky and surrounded by mountain ranges. The belief system is Shaivite, but they worship twelve Shiv lingas with different names. They have many icons, male as well as female. The most fascinating part of their life is their urge to paint, using natural material for making colours. They temple walls, their houses and even rocks are adorned with pictures. During festivals, they enact a typical dance drama – dabri – to appease Shiva. Watching them living their lives is a fascinating experience.
