From temples to recording studios of Kochi, Kerala in South India, we follow four musicians -a student and his master, a professional and a promoter - all uniquely devoted to the music that permeates life in India. Most, if not all, members of a family will know how to play the tabla, a popular instrument in Indian music culture. God is believed to be a lover of music and so great care is taken to pass on the skill from generation to generation.
