Tabla recital by Sanjay Mukherjee

Saturday evening we witnessed a powerful tabla recital, supported by the sitar, by Pt. Sanjay Mukherjee showcasing various styles of tabla playing.
He is one of the most well versed musicologist and great teacher on the subject belonging to the Farukhabad Gharana of Hindustani Classical Music.
He went through different complex tabla rhythms which only connoisseurs can name. Even poetry could be recited by playing the tabla… as he commented, the fingers need to sprout vigour and emotions with supreme artistry.
Tabla and sitar blended together very well. They concluded with a jugalbandi on tabla and sitar much to the taste of the public.
The evening was organised by ARPANAA.
Thank you so much Geeta, Creativity & Mona, Yantra for this wonderful evening.

Sanghamita Das in Auroville

Sanghamita Das rendered us a fascinating presentation on the highly traditional Baul singing and dancing tradition in Kala Kendra.
Bauls are a religious and cultural group of India, best known for their songs and poems to the god who dwells within. The term “Baul” is usually understood to mean “madman” or religious ecstatic, and Bauls often describe themselves as crazy for God.

The Baul tradition dates back to the early 8th C AD and has grown weaving together threads from Sahajiya Buddhism, Turkish Sufism and Bengali Hinduism. This powerful musical form has been recognised as a “Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity” by UNESCO.

She supported herself on Ektara and Guggi drum and Suresh on cajon and Dhani on guitar took care of some added percussion and strings.

Then it was the turn of Sudakar, a Solitude Farm volunteer accompanied by Maytria on Beatbox. Sudakar sang a couple of Hindi Pop songs of the ’90, a popular Tamil song and more.

It all begins with a conversation of improvised rhythms between Arnab and Gino at Sangam Hall, Savitri Bhavan.
Arnab B. Chowdhury shares a few thoughts, rhythms and motifs from his training programme – ‘Know Your Rhythm’ that helps participants discover musicality, their own sense of rhythm.
Through immersive exercises in a spirit of self-culture and joy, ‘Know Your Rhythm’ creates conditions for participants to experienc Aha! Moments both as individual and a member of the collective. He believes that these Aha! Moments are like opening windows towards Transformation.
In Auroville, ‘Know Your Rhythm’ (KYR) has been presented to a variety of audiences such as teachers from different schools of Auroville, Tamil Nadu government officials at Sustainable Livelihood Institute, Dakshina Chanting Group, young participants of Swadharma semester programme.
