Episode 10. The Forgotten Kingdoms of India – Navina Haidar and Seif El Rashidi

Navina Haidar, Curator in Charge of the Department of Islamic Art at the Metropolitan Museum of New York, takes us on an inspiring journey to South India and the sultanates of the Deccan. This was a land of great natural wealth that produced striking art and a culture of tolerance—a land where at least one sultan saw himself as both the ‘son of Ganesh’ and a follower of Muhammad.

This podcast is part of Asia House Arts in Isolation Series and Converging Paths, an initiative organised in partnership with the Barakat Trust that promotes the arts and cultures of the Islamic World.
