Bamboo Ballads is a documentary that tells the story of a school student, Naina Febin, who is using music to conserve her favourite plant, bamboo. She plants bamboo saplings in every available space—school campuses, public areas, private compounds, and so on. She distributes bamboo saplings to the residents in her neighbourhood. Naina is even writing a book on bamboo. She has formed a bamboo music band that uses only instruments made of bamboo. She is the lead vocalist and the band has only one goal—spread awareness on bamboo conservation. The band performs folk songs from a bygone era when bamboo was the main building material and the mainstay of the rural economy. Naina wants to retrieve that bamboo culture, which is a route to sustainable development. Bamboo Ballads takes the viewer through a journey that covers the philosophy, myth and the heritage of bamboo and its importance in conserving the environment.
