"It's all around us, so much so, that probably no state in India has been untouched by it - The labour migration. The state which probably provides the most manpower to India's varied workforce is Bihar. More specifically, the Bhojpur region. While the region has become infamous for its supposedly low brow music and cinema, what hides underneath is a whole genre of art which is seldom heard by outsiders. This week, starting a new series, The Great Indian Migration, we delve into the world of migration songs, where both men and women turn to music to express their emotion, which are loaded with longing and maybe not so surprisingly, sexuality. Tune in and discover the world of Bhojpuri migration songs, and understand what it teaches us about ourselves.

Special thanks to Avishesh Jha whose voice you will hear in this episode. He runs a wonderful Hindi storytelling podcast, Chunnu PCO. Set in the 90s, a PCO narrates stories of people who used to make a phone call through it.
