Invitation (Photographer: web)In magical atmosphere of Krtashraya the Aurodham Gardens, in front of numerous public both Latif and Parvathy took us on a spiritual journey trough music. Parvathy accompanied herself on ektara(one stringed baul instrument), duggi(clay drum) and nupur(anklet), dancing, and we could feel her voice, reaching high pitches, as it is coming from very far, and yet so close to our hearts. "Songs from the Heart Beyond Borders" was the tittle of two concerts Parvathy Baul and Latif Bolat gave to Auroville and Pondicherry audience. We couldn't look for the better conclusion of Latif Bolat visit in Auroville with hist talks and lecture on Sufi poetry,philosophy, art and music, on historical background of Turkey, and on spiritual essence of Islam.

Vidhushi Purnima Chaudhuri (Photographer: Philippe)Vidhushi Purnima Chaudhuri is an exponent of 'Thumri' style of North Indian Music. Initially cited as a 'raga' rather than a genre, 'thumri' is widely accepted to have started in the 19th century court of Wajid Ali Shah. Changes in the social climate led to the development of two styles of 'thumri': one under the tutelage of the landlords of Lucknow, and the other in Banaras and Gaya. The lively beat of the Lucknow 'thumri' soon lost its recognition to the 'chota kayal', on the other hand, Banaras 'thumri' gradually developed into an art form. Purnima Chaudhuri trained in Banaras under the guidance Mahadev Prasad Mishra and is recipient of neumerous prestigious awards both in India as well as abroad.
