For Barta, her sarangi and the musical tradition that she keeps alive are important. We all have traditions and objects that we cherish and that we would
like to preserve for future generations. They may be of great economic value. But many of them create emotions and make us feel that we belong to something
– a country, a tradition, a way of life. They may be objects or buildings that we can touch and explore, but they can also be songs to be sung or stories
to be told. It is the heritage that we want to pass on to the future generations. But the less tangible it is, the more difficult it is to safeguard.
