    IAAC presents the10th Annual Mahindra Indo-American Arts Council Film Festival with "Films on Music". Community Sponsor: HarmoNYom.

    Documentary: Songs of Mashangva
    Rewben Mashangva, a blues musician and composer from the Tangkhul Naga tribe of Northeast India begins to explore past the folk music that his tribe had abandoned when they converted to Christianity. Making his own traditional instruments, Mashangva single-handedly begins to revive a musical form before his musical heritage fades completely away. This documentary portrait offers a rare look at the impact of Western style education on the Naga customs and on how a rich tribal musical tradition has slowly been replaced by Christian hymns and choirs.
    Featuring Rewben Mashangva.
    Directed by Oinam Doren, India, 2010, 72 mins, US Premiere, English.
