musical…joins Panchu Maharaj, a classical drummer and musical instructor at Banaras Hindu University, in his village home to witness the more private aspects of his life. While performing everyday activities, Panchu describes his approach to life and musical perfection. He and his sons and nephews conduct a late-night practice session, where music is played in the casual atmosphere in which it is most frequently heard, and where musical techniques are mastered under the eye of the expert. This film provides an unusually human view of an Indian master musician transmitting a musical tradition to the younger members of his family.
