Book: Ethnographie filmée des musiciens du desert du thar en Inde, by Fabienne Le Houérou

Ethnographie filmée des musiciens du desert du thar en inde : princes et vagabonds, poussière d'exilsLe Houerou Fabienne,  Ethnographie filmée des musiciens du désert du Thar en Inde: Princes et Vagabonds, poussière d’exils, Paris, L’Harmattan, 2021.

L’auteur s’appuie sur une heuristique des images et, en particulier, un long métrage : Princes et Vagabonds, afin d’élaborer une ethnographie filmée des musiciens itinérants dans le désert du Thar (Rajasthan, Inde). Par le prisme du film et des images animées, elle montre l’existence d’une poussière d’exils induite par le système des castes, les exils intérieurs, les exils sociaux, les exils religieux, les seuils/exils de ces musiciens qui tentent de se réinventer en migrant dans des ailleurs aux multiples ouvertures. Fabienne le Houérou s’attèle ainsi à saisir le caractère « rhizomorphe » d’une théorie des exils pluriels en insistant sur les correspondances entre exils forcés et volontaires.
