Raw, unedited video of boatman Rajkumar singing a Thumri while rowing tourists in Varanasi. March 2014.

 

It is a known fact that in India, talent is abundant. You come across people with unparalleled talent on the streets, in the slums, in places where one would least expect it. And that is exactly what happened when we came across Rajkumar the boatman rowing tourists on the Ganges, in Varanasi.

 

Rajkumar has had no formal training in music. For the last few years he has been keeping poor health. But listening to him, was an amazing experience!

 

Enjoy the unedited recording complete with the temple bells, the noise along the Varanasi ghats, talking on the boat, the floating salesman etc.
