Synopsis

Fakirs, or ascetic monks, in the Bengal region of east India practice their own version of Islam. The songs of these fakirs, who are also minstrels, reveal their living faith. Their songs originally traveled through central Asia to Bengal, featuring violins, percussion, whistles, and heart-rending vocals, and educate people that "to know oneself is to know God."
