about

Ansh Communications (also Awaaz ki Dukaan) has, within its collection of cassettes, a heavily obscured recording of a woman in search of a person named Nilli. This anonymous recording became an object of interest during my stay in Gunehar, Himchal Pradesh. Together with residents of the village I tried to find out who might have sang it, where she was from, and what she was singing about. And just as Nilli's song is a song about searching so these songs and conversations are ones that search for the coordinates of a mulkh (from urdu mulk: realm, kingdom) that is Gunehar.
