Bamboo Ballads is a documentary that tells the story of a school student, Naina Febin, who is using music to conserve her favorite plant, bamboo. She plants bamboo saplings in every available space—school campuses, public areas, private compounds. She distributes bamboo saplings to the residents in her neighborhood. Naina is even writing a book on bamboo. She has formed a bamboo music band that uses only instruments made of bamboo. The band has only one goal: spreading awareness on bamboo conservation. 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.
