"In October 2021, the Kannada film Salaga, featured a track which was sung by a Hindustani classical singer, the first from her community. Further up north in Hyderabad, since the 18th century, there is a popular form of music which features only drums. Across the border in Pakistan, a song sung by Balochi singer Shabana Noshi became the anthem of the Pakistan People's Party, following which Benazir Bhutto rose to power.

But what if I told you that the thing which connects these 3 disparate songs has nothing to do with India or Pakistan or even South Asia. This week, in the seventh episode of The Great Migration, we uncover the story of Siddis, who have a 600 year history in India, and are economically and socially marginalised today. Tune in, discover their connection with Limes, and what they can teach us about the rich pluralistic trasitions of India.
