Indian musicians perform during a "Manganiyar Seduction" show in New Delhi on Nov. 27. The Manganiyar Seduction, a 70-minute theatrical presentation, was conceived by Indian director Roysten Abel. The concept creates a dazzling union between Manganiyars music and the visual seduction of Amsterdam's red light district. The sets are a combination of the Hawa Mahal and the Red light district of Amsterdam.The Manganiyars are a caste of muslim musicians who traditionally performed for the kings of Rajasthan in India. Over the years their patrons have shifted from the kings to a person who could give them a meal. Their repertoire ranges from ballads about the kings to Sufi songs written by various mystics.
