Indus blues

Pakistani folk artists talk about their struggle to keep a fading art alive while reminding the world what they are about to lose.
In Pakistan, a country riddled with political turmoil, economic challenges, and social identity crisis, musicians and instrument craftsmen find it hard to survive and sustain their art. They also have to deal with the fact that being a music performer is a social taboo in society. Indus blues does not only showcase the unique performances of these rarely seen musical instruments from perhaps their last remaining maestros, but also takes the audience on a journey throughout the landscape of Pakistan from the northern Karakoram mountains to the southern coastline.
