The Amdavad Movie Marathon invites you to set sail with us on a journey to the Caribbean with Surabhi Sharma’s film
‘Jahaji Music: India in the Caribbean’

About the Film:
From the mid-nineteenth century, Indian labourers arrived in the Caribbean on boats, bringing a few belongings and their music – the beginnings of a remarkable cultural practice. More than 150 years later, musician Remo Fernandes travels to the Islands to explore potential collaborations and create new work. ‘Jahaji Music’ is a record of a difficult, if unusual and complex, musical journey.

She completed a BA in Anthropology and Psychology from St. Xavier’s College, Mumbai University. Her films have been screened and awarded at various international and national festivals. She has also directed and scripted fiction films and Science Programming for children. Beyond this Surabhi Sharma is a guest lecturer at the National Institute of Design and at the Centre for Media and Cultural Studies, Tata Institute of Social Science.
