Being invited to present legendary folk musicians at the Edinburgh International Festival and the visit of the Scottish Foreign Minister to RIFF last year; facilitating and enabling the collaboration with Dharohar project and Mumford and Sons and the royalties to the folk artists after that; being on a list of best international festivals for four years in a row.Tell us more about the documentary Bidesia in Bambai?Bidesia in Bambai is an unusual film by film maker Surabhi Sharma – about the mobile culture, migration to Mumbai and Bhojpuri music in the city.
