Language: Urdu-Hindi
Duration: 1 hour (with introduction)
Performed by: Ankit Chadha

Dastangoi, the lost art of storytelling, developed around the stories of adventures of an Arab hero – Amir Hamza, in 7th century AD. The tradition reached its zenith in the 19th century North India. With the demise of Mir Baqar Ali, the last known exponent of the art form, in 1928, the form also died with him. The modern revival is an effort of two gentlemen, SR Faruqi, the noted Urdu litterateur, and Mahmood Farooqui.
