Faith Connections and Bhoom Shankar

Pan Nalin is one of my favorite director and I particularly love the way he films and visualizes vast landscapes and creates a beautiful narrative through a minimalist yet powerful visual design. His recent documentary, Faith Connections, is a testament to that. I’m yet to watch it fully and hope the opportunity comes soon enough but while checking out its trailers on YouTube, came across this lovely song that is used in the film.

Faith Connections is a documentary film on Kumbh Mela, which is considered as world’s one of the most extra ordinary religious events. Kumbh Mela is also known for the Sadhus smoking Ganjaa and this song by One Drop Forward juxtaposed with the visuals of Sadhus smoking a joint celebrates that carefree attitude of this festival.

Though I’ve never tried smoking (forget smoking Ganja), this song is addictive so thought of sharing.
