The silent film masterpiece signed Franz Osten in 1925 tells the story of Buddha’s youth, a pretext for revealing the sumptuous lives of the Rajahs at a time when myth and reality were still one. The greatest Manghaniyar and Langa musicians of the Divana Ensemble of Rajasthan (India), formerly in the service of Hindu lords, recreate their parents’ primeval music, an image of a different era.
