Interview of Antar Jogi and the ballad 'Raja Bharthari-ki-Katha'

Antar Jogi rears goats in the nearby forest everyday. In the interview, Antar says that he learned singing from his elders when he was very young. His father passed away very early when he was a child. While grazing the goats he used to memorize the ballads. He has closely observed the Jogi musicians by attending jagarans and learning from them. He sings ballads of Raja Gopichand, Raja Bharthari, Ramdev Peer and Shankar Biawala. This particular video shows excerpts from the Raja Bharthari-ki-Katha.
