Raga CDs of the Months (03/08): NAVA RASA-S… the Moods of Indian Ragas

Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on March 4, 2008

In Indian performing arts the term “Rasa” occasionally is awarded to an outstanding meaning, in comparison to the Western world very differently. To the dancer, actor, instrumentalist or vocalist is given the task to ariuse in the audience some determined emotions, the Rasa-s. In the Middle Ages Bharata Muni described in his Natyasastra – a theoretical study for dramaturgy – eight types of emotions, later were completed by the 9th expression Shantham.

Originally written in Sanskrit until today the theory of rasa-s determines the aesthetic self understanding for dance, theatre and music performances.

Concerted move to develop music and artists

Musicians from North and South join hands and take the harmonius initiative

Tamil Nadu – Staff Reporter

CHENNAI: It was a rare confluence of music in the city, as musicians from different parts of the country came together on Monday to discuss ways to protect the art form, be it classical or folk.

All-India-Musicians-Group-032008-1Popular Hindustani and Carnatic musicians formed the All India Musicians Group (AIMG) with the objective of preserving the art of making music, improving the life of veteran artists and creating awareness of music education in schools.

The group comprises six musicians from the north and six from the south. The AIMG musicians from north are Ajoy Chakrabarty, Zakir Hussain, Jasraj, Rajan Mishra and Shivkumar Sharma. Those from the south are M. Balamuralikrishna, Chitraveena N. Ravikiran, Sudha Raghunathan, T.N. Seshagopalan and U. Srinivas.

Addressing press persons here, sitar artist Arvind Parikh said the group was formed two years ago to take stock of the current situation in the light of globalisation. “If musicians raise a united voice for Indian music, the impact would be better,” he said. Several issues such as protection and development of traditional forms of music and nurturing young talent were discussed during the meetings held sometime ago in Mumbai and Delhi.

Briefing about the meeting with Prasar Bharathi representatives in New Delhi, Mr. Parikh said the fund allocated for promotion of arts and culture has been increased from Rs. 33 crore to Rs. 49 crore. The representatives have also agreed to set up an appellate authority for musicians.
