Director: Bardroy Barretto

Much like the Goan music that he is so passionate about, Bardroy Barretto landed up on the shores of Bombay in search of a larger stage. Wide-eyed and curious about the power of cinema, he was mesmerised by the stories it could bring alive.
Starting out in 1987 as an Asst. Cameraman, his innate inquisitiveness drew him into the editing room which soon became his own little comfort zone. From here he blossomed into one of the country’s best editors working with the finest talent from advertising and short films.
In 2002 he embarked on his journey as an ‘Ad film Director’ and by 2004 his boutique production house, Brown Skins, was a reputed banner in the demanding world of advertising film production.

But it was his undying passion to create something worthy enough to display the richness of true Goan culture that led to this marvellous tribute to its musicians and their unsung contribution to the Indian film industry.

Today Bardroy’s decade-old dream stands realised. And what we have is a moving saga of Goa’s epic love affair with her Music. A narrative that proudly defies the narrow label of football, fun and feni that is often pinned on the state.
