This trip is the first to explore the luscious northeastern Indian state of Assam – and to give an unforgettable insight into the life, culture and music. We will visit Majuli island in the Brahmaputra river, the historic town of Sivasagar, with its tombs and temples, and the protected marshes and forests of the Kaziranga nature reserve. During the Spring festival of Bihu, Assam explodes into a carnival of music, dancing, hospitality and abundance: a celebration of the very best of Assamese culture. On our journey through this unexplored landscape, we’ll meet the monks who have developed and passed down Sattriya classical dance and Borgeet music, drummers who play all festival long in their neighbours front yards, the girls who perform the graceful Bihu dance, and experts with a goldmine of stories to share with you.
