The Manganiyar Classroom



School of Rock, Indian folk style.

‘This one will stay with us for a long time … yet another genius production.’ Rolling Stone India

From the creator of the international sensation The Manganiyar Seduction (2011 PIAF) comes another exuberant and uplifting music-theatre experience to shine a spotlight on the Manganiyar musical tradition. This time the younger members of this tribal community are the stars of the high energy show.

With sublime voices matched by their onstage attitude, the children of The Manganiyar Classroom rebel against their teacher, spontaneously creating beautiful music before your eyes. The result is a joyous theatrical experience that will captivate and delight.
