With Monsoon comes rice planting season and its almost customary that the farmers sing folk songs while working in the field.
I ran into some ladies working in the field while returning from a shoot. As I had the equipment and the crew I was working with was enamored with the singing, we decided to shoot some footage and record some audio. We hoped to use the song in the project, which alas didn't pan out as we expected; but it was too good of a memory to let it go to waste. So here is an ultra short montage.
