were two Manganiyars, Marne Khan and DaewooKhan.
June in Spain was fabulous. We spent most of our time outdoors, either in parks or in the green spaces next to t he historic roman aqueduct in Segovia. We began having music sessions with t he Manganiyars in these outdoor spaces, which was intoxicating (or at least the Manganiyars could sense the intoxication in me). o
,"u •uo

FilledwithinspirationwhenIreturned to India Ineeded totranslatethisseduction of t he spirit to a more physical realm. I recalled how their music sucked me in slowly in spite of the natural resistance to a nev-.r culture by titillating my spirit At one point it forced me to let go and experience something beyond me or their singing. a third realm. As a theater director, this is what I always wanted the audience to experience. It happened to me over a span oftwoweek$.andIlCM'Ihadtorecreatethis Manganiyars,evenafterhearingthema grandexperienceinoneevening. t housand times. theystillkeepseducingme.
I cannot recall a night or day when I did not go to sleep before five in the morning. Once deep into my sleep. I could hear the Manganiyars in my dream only to realize that they were outside my room waking me up with their lovely music at nine o'clock.The day literally began on this wonderful note. The Manganiyars would then follow me and play music in all of the places I went at most times overlooking the decorum of the space. They would then follow me to my room. and once Iwas tucked in rny bed at five- thirty in the morning. they would sing and literally rockme to sleep. making sure that my day ended on a good note as well This continued for a fortnight and Icould sense a strange physiological happening in my system but could not put a finger on it.
I had to leave for Bonn midway through liyo's run since I had another play happening there.When my friends met me in Bonn on arrival. they t hought Iwas on acid.Such was the impact these twoManganiyarshadhadonme.Istarted to miss them. so I would call t hem from Germany and ask them to sing for me overthephone.IrealizedthenthatIwas totally seduced
Manganiyarswaslikeamadrollercoaster ride almost bordering on t he burlesque inside my head heart, and body, and for some strange reason, Amsterdam's red light district kept coming to mind. It could have been to do with the seduction or the burlesque. The windows suddenly came alive, allowing many more interpretations like that of a jewel case, where these musicians became jewels to me, and the windows became symbols of Indian palaces where women would be on the receiving end of voyeurism to audiences of certain ceremonies or processions.
Now having arrived at t he physical space, the possibility of creating that magical fortnight into a performance stood before me like the wide deserts of the Thar. I went to Jaisalmer and auditioned 1.000 musicians from which Iselected 45.The Manganiyars were not used to a system of rehearsals. and Iwas trying to translate an experience which was not even clear to me into a piece of theater t hrough them. Since I was not a music director, and they were not from t heater, all we could do was to be open and let the ephemeral take form. Being a theater director I had arrived at the fact that the narrative was not linear but a staggered spiral. I did not want to use any jargon to communicate this with them and did not have a vocabulary for them which would help us achieve this staggered spiral instantly . So we got into the process of understanding each other, t hereby trusting ourselves to arrive at The Monganiyar Seduction over a period of three years. I thought the seduction was just a one-time thing. but with the

caste of Muslim musicians who
are predominantly settled in t he districts of Jaisalrner, Barmer, and Jodhpur,which are in the heart of the Thar Desert. They traditionally performed for the kings, but over the years, their patrons shifted from the kings to people who could give them a meal. In the 1970s. the late ethnomusicoiogist Kamal Kothari discovered t he Manganiyars and gave them a ne'/{ life in contemporary times.
Their repertoire includes ballads about the kings as well as Sufi poems written by various mystics. They also have songs for various occasions like birth. marriage, and feasts. Even though they are classified as folk musicians, t heir traditional music is classical and clearly displays the roots of classical music in India. The combination of t heir folk music's rawness and their classical music's complexity is a trait that makes their music so special.
R QYSTEN ABEL (DrrecW)was born in Kerala South India. He went to school at Good Shepherd International School in Doty where he
started writing and directing plays. Little did he know then that he would eventually pursue theater as a career. He went on to study commerce in college, but dropped out twice after enrolling in two different colleges. Bored with commerce and business, which he had pursued at his parents'insistence,herealizedthathewas most passionate about his background in theater.He discarded the family business, joined drama schooL and informed his parents after he had accepted admission
Mr.Abelgraduated from the National School of Drama in 1994 and apprenticed with the Royal Shakespeare Company

in the same year. He returned to India in z
1995 and founded t he Indian Shakespeare Company.In1999.hedevisedanddirected Othello, a play in black and white, which was his first original work. It went on to win the Scotsman Fringe First Award and since then has toured extensively around the world. He received national and international recognition from Othello, and followed it by conceWingand directing several original works. some of which were produced in India and some that were produced in Europe.
He t hen began to work with out-
of-work street performers (magicians,
jugglers. impersonators, snake channers,
acrobats, musicians, puppeteers, etc).
This work was noticed in Italy and he was
invited to conceive and direct a play on
the Italian filmmaker Federico Fellini in •
Rimini, Fellini's Italian hometown. That >r
same winter, he returned to India to create a play called The Spirit of Anne Fronk. which starred some of t he biggest female stars in India. Soon after that, he took his first step into cinema with his first feature film. Othello.
Another turning point in his life came after discovering his joy of creating theater with musicians. He then went on to create two major productions: The Mongoniyor Seduction and A Hundred Charmers, which have been traveling t he world. Mr. Abel is currently working on a project titled The Kitchen of Life which he is devising with the Mizhav drummers from Kerala along with a few cooks. He is also in the process of setting up an international center for contemporary traditional performances in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan.
UMS welcomes Roysten Abel and the cost of The Manganiyar Seduction os they make their UMS debuts this weekend.
