Coffee Hour: A Sweet Breeze Of Sa-re-ga (India)

Author:Author unknown, Issue: September 2001, Topic: Coffee Hour

SA-RE-GA-MA is the scale (tone) of Indian sub-continental vocal as well as instrumental music. DHA-DHIN or TAK-TETE-KETE are like an alphabet of complementary drum (rhythm) sounds which work together.

Indian music means entering a very different world of sensation, feelings and emotions that leads you in to the environment of mythological India. It is four thousand years old. There is so much research and many applications depending on the age and state of cultures. The most interesting way is to listen and learn from a Master (gurudev). How is it possible that the message from long ago can speak to us today?

This month's special guest is Mr. Sushanta Kumar Bhowmik, who studies microbiology in Tsukuba. For an interesting experience, come to the COFFEE HOUR and experience the emotion of a performance of vocal music, with a classical touch in Hindi and also Rabindra-Sangit (Tagor song) and Nazrul-Giti in Bengali.

Date / Time:September 26 (Wed.) 14:00?16:00 Guest: Mr. Sushanta Kumar BhowmikiINDIAj Place:Tsukuba Information Center 3F
