CH – Raga CDs of the Months (04/2015): Dr. Gangubai Hangal – Voice of Tradition (biography)

Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on April 27, 2015

“Voice of Tradition – Dr. Gangubai Hangal” (a biographic radio show)

Dr. Gangubai Gangubai (3/5/1913-7/21/2009) was a representative of North Indian Classics. This exceptional vocalist was “on air” in IMC OnAir’s radio show “Women in Indian Classics” (part 1) beside important female representatives of North and South India.

The 100th birthday (5th March) of Gangubai Hangal gives us some seriously reasons we like to dedicate the radio show @ Radio RaSA (and worldwide as webradio) to this outstanding artist who was called “Father of the Khayal” (mainly because of Gangubai’s androgynous voice).

dates of broadcasting…

27th April 2015 – 04:00 pm EST (10:00 pm CET) @ Radio RaSA (CH)
(premiere: 17th August 2010 – 09:00 pm CET @ TIDE Radio)

In the historical meaning we can see Gangubai as the most influential artist who helped women to the emancipation in Indian vocals. Beside four honorary doctorate Gangubai received in 1971 – at the age of 58 years – the Padma Bhushan, and lately in 2002 the Padma Vibhushan, the second highest civilian order of India. 2002 was also the year in which Gangubai was diagnosed of bone cancer she successfully overcame after three years treatment.

Gangubai was born 1913 in Karnataka, a South Indian Federal State. Gangubai originates from a simple family, whose earlier generations belonged to the Gangamats, the caste of agricultural boat people. In her early career Gangubai’s origin from this social milleu she was refused by the orthodox Brahmans. It wasn’t modern that a woman earns her living costs with arts. Although Gangubai’s father, Shri Nadgir and her husband, Shri Gururao Kaulgi likewise belonged to the caste of Brahmans in her family prevailed a consciousness that a woman is ‘Angavashtra’ (literally meaning: an additional article of clothing, which decorates subtle men as status symbol).

In 1928 the family of Gangubai moved 20 kilometres southeast, from Dharwad as the place of her birth to Hubli that time like today a commercial centre with approx. 1,5 million inhabitants. Hubli remained for Gangubai as the adopted home till her dying on 21st July 2009.

Gangubai had at the age of 20 years in 1933 with a concert in Bombay (Mumbai) her artistic break-through. Relevant influence on the vocal qualities beside her musical talent had the strict training, which Gangubai received for 15 years from Pandit Rambhau Kundgolkar, in India known as Sawai Gandharv.

Sawai Gandharv, so reported Gangubai herself, taught her no more than four Ragas. But the training was very strict often practicing for hours monotonously single phrases. Her teacher followed the principle same how one should deal with money. Each note should be used as economically as possible. Gangubai remained always faithful to this rule during her 80 years long musician career. At the beginning she presented songs of light Indian classicals, Bhajans and Thumris. Later she focused completely to the Khayal, the modern singing style of North Indian classics. Khyal means “imagination”. This style developed from the Qawwali, from Sufi music with Muslim influence in the 17th century at the court of Mohammed Shah Rangile (1719-1748). The Khayal gives a musician free space for improvisation and possesses nevertheless a clear essential structure, either in the slow tempo, bada khyal or as chhota Khayl in a fast tempo.

Gangubai is well-known for she interpreted the Khayal in slow tempo, note for note which is the substantial characteristic of the Kirana Gharana, one of India’s music schools.

With her musical tools Gangubai could still give her last concert at the age of 93 on 12th March 2006. Although particularly from the loss of her daughter in 2004 she had to use a wheelchair and became in need of care for the last years of her impressive life.

On 17th May 2009, two months before their dying the “voice of the tradition” inaugurated the “Naryan Academy OF Hindustani Classical Music” in Hubli… and under the roof of the Hangal Music Foundation a national memorial award will honor artists with outstanding earnings/services for Indian Classical Music.

The Padmavibhushan Dr. Gangubai Hangal Memorial National Award will be assigned in 2010 to the outstanding singer Pandit Bhimsen Joshi (see right picture, 1st row). Bhimsen Joshi was introduced various times in IMC OnAir’s radio shows.

Khayal in Raag Bageshree (late night raga), quick tempo: Drut… see complete playlist.

CH – Raga CDs des Monats (04/2015): Dr. Gangubai Hangal – Voice of Tradition (Biographie)

Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on April 27, 2015

“Voice of Tradition (Die Stimme der Tradition) – Dr. Gangubai Hangal” (eine biographische Sendung)

Dr. Gangubai Gangubai (5. März 1913 – 21. Juli 2009) ist eine Vertreterin der nordindischen Klassik. Diese Ausnahmesängerin kam uns in der Sendung “Frauen in der indischen Klassik” (Teil1) schon einmal zu Gehör, neben bedeutenden Vertreterinnen Nord- und Südindiens.

Die Sendung nimmt den 100sten Geburtstag (05/03/2013) von dem “Vater des Khayals“, wie man Gangubai Hangal auch nannte, zum Anlass, um dieser herausragenden Künstlerpersönlichkeit einen Abend zu widmen, auf Radio RaSA (und weltweit als Webradio).

S e n d e t e r m i n e…

27. April 2015 – 22:00 Uhr CET (04:00 pm EST) @ Radio RaSA (CH)
(Premiere: 17. August 2010 – 21:00 Uhr CET @ TIDE Radio)

In der geschichtlichen Bedeutung wir Gangubai als die einflussreichste Künstlerin gesehen, die Frauen zur Emanzipation im indischen Gesang verholfen hat. Neben vier Ehrendoktorwürden erhielt Gangubai 1971 – im Alter von 58 Jahren – den Padma Bhushan, und erst 2002 den Padma Vibhushan, der zweithöchste zivile Orden Indiens. 2002 war auch das Jahr, in dem bei Gangubai Knochenkrebs diagnostiziert wurde, den sie nach drei Jahren Behandlung erfolgreich überwinden konnte.

Gangubai wurde 1913 im südindischen Bundesstaat, in Karnataka, geboren. Gangubai stammt aus einer einfachen Familie, deren frühere Generationen den Gangamats angehörten, der Kaste einfacher Bootsleute, die auch Ackerbau betreiben. Ihre Herkunft aus diesem sozial-einfachen Millieu brachte Gangubai in ihrer frühen Karriere die Ablehnung der orthodoxen Brahmanen ein. Es schickte sich nicht für Frauen, sich mit Künsten den Lebensunterhalt zu verdienen. Obgleich ihr Vater, Shri Nadgir und ihr Ehemann, Shri Gururao Kaulgi ebenfalls der Kaste der Brahmanen angehörten, herrschte in ihrer Familie das Standesbewusstsein vor, dass Frauen eine Zierde eines Mannes seien: Angavashtra. In der Wortbedeutung heisst dies in etwa: ein zusätzliches Kleidungsstück, das feingeistigen Männern als Statussymbol schmückt.

Die Familie von Gangubai zog 1928 von Dharwad, ihrem Geburtsort zu dem 20 Kilometer süd-östlich gelegenen Hubli, damals wie heute ein kommerzielles Zentrum mit ca. 1.5 Millionen Einwohnern. Hubli blieb für Gangubai ihre Wahlheimat bis zu Ihrem Ableben am 21. Juli 2009.

Den künstlerischen Durchbruch erlangte Gangubai im Alter von 20 Jahren, mit einem Konzert im damaligen Bombay, 1933. Maßgeblichen Einfluss auf die gesanglichen Qualitäten von Gangubai waren neben ihrem musikalischen Talent die strenge Ausbildung, die sie 15 Jahre lang von Pandit Rambhau Kundgolkar erhielt, in Indien eher bekannt als Sawai Gandharv.

Sawai Gandharv, so Gangubai selbst, lehrte sie nicht mehr als vier Ragas. In ihrer strengen Ausbildung, die oft stundenlanges, monotones Üben einzelner Phrasierungen bedeutete, folgte ihre Lehrer dem Prinzip, wie man mit Geld umgehen sollte. Jede Note sollte so sparsam wie möglich eingesetzt werden. Dieser Regel blieb Gangubai in ihrer 80-jährigen Musikerkarriere stets treu. Während sie noch zu Beginn Lieder der leichten indischen Klassik, Bhajans und Thumris präsentierte, verschrieb sie sich später ganz dem Khayal, dem modernen Gesangsstil der nordindischen Klassik. Khyal, das bedeutet “Imagination”. Dieser Gesangsstil hat sich aus dem Qawwali, aus der Sufi-Musik mit muslimischer Prägung entwickelt, im 17ten Jahrundert am Hofe von Mohammed Shah Rangile (1719-1748). Der Khayal gibt dem Musiker viel Freiraum für Improvisation und besitzt dennoch eine klare Grundstruktur, entweder im langsamen Tempo, bada khyal oder als chhota Khayl, im schnellen Tempo.
Gangubai ist dafür bekannt, dass sie den Khayal in langsamen Tempo ausführte, Note für Note, dem wesentlichen Merkmal der Kirana Gharana, eine der indischen Musikschulen.

Mit diesem Rüstzeug konnte Gangubai noch im Alter von 93 Jahren, am 12. März 2006 ihr letztes Konzert geben, obgleich sie, besonders von dem Verlust ihrer Tochter in 2004, gezeichnet, im Rollstuhl saß und für die letzten Jahre ihres Lebens pflegebedürftig wurde.

Am 17. Mai 2009, zwei Monate vor ihrem Ableben, hatte die “Stimme der Tradition” in Hubli die “Naryan Academy of Hindustani Classical Music” eingeweiht… und unter dem Dach der Hangal Music Foundation wird ein Gedächtnispreis, der Padmavibhushan Dr Gangubai Hangal Memorial National Award vergeben, als nationaler Award zur Auszeichnung von Künstlern mit herausragenden Verdiensten um die indisch-klassische Musik. In 2010 wird er an den herausragenden Sänger Pandit Bhimsen Joshi  (s. linkes Bild, 2. Reihe) vergeben. Bhimsen Joshi wurde diverse Male in unserer Sendung vorgestellt.

Khayal in der Ragaform Bageshree (Spätnachtraga), schnelles Tempo Drut… s. vollständige Playlist.

Das Harmonium trifft man in ganz Indien… und in nahezu allen Musikgenres auf dem südindischen Kontinent. Man hört den unverkennbaren Klang des Harmoniums im Rabindra Sangeet (Tagore songs) im indischen Bundesstaat Bengalen, im Natya Sangeet in Maharashtra ebenso wie im indischen Film, für Ghazals und in der indischen Klassik.

Das handbetriebene, einhändig zu spielende Harmonium ist in Indien eines der am weitesten verbreiteten Instrumente. Man findet das Tasteninstrument in vielen indischen Haushalten, in Tempeln und indischen Theatern. – Und hört es auch unterwegs in der indischen Eisenbahn, dem wichtigsten Transportsystem Indiens.

Das Harmonium wird als Begleitinstrument für Gesangsinterpreten des Khayals, einem modernen Gesangsstil in der nordindischen Klassik oder Thumri-s der leichten indischen Klassik verwendet, ebenso im Musikunterricht und für das Komponieren.

Samvadini - a modified version of harmonium to...

Mit technischen Neuerungen in den 70er Jahren erhielt das indische Harmonium seinen endgültigen Namen: Samvadini (abgeleitet aus dem Sanskritwort Samvad = Harmonie).

Unter Sikhs, und auch unter Muslime und Hindus ist dieses Instrument sehr beliebt für die Begleitung von andächtigen Gebetsgesänge, wie Shabad, Kirtan-s und Bhajan-s. Bei den Sikhs ist das Harmonium bekannt als Vaja (o. Baja = instrument you can play). In einigen Regionen Nordindiens nennt man es Peti (= hölzerne Kiste (box)).

Am 13. Januar 2014 ist der Harmoniumspieler Pandit Purushottam Madhaavrao Walawalkar (11.6.1923-13.1.2014) verstorben. In der indischen Klassik zählt Walawalkar auf seinem Instrument zu den bedeutendsten Begleitmusikern des 20. Jahrhunderts. Zu seinem Gedenken wird und das Harmoniumspiel von Purushottam Walawalkar durch die gesamte Sendung führen, als Begleiter von den grossen Gesangsinterpreten und -interpretinnen (der nordindischen Klassik)… wie Girija Devi, Shobha Gurtu, Kishori Amonkar, Bhimsen Joshi, Ulhas Kashalkar und Jitendra Abhisheki.

The promotion initiative IMC – India meets Classic presents on coming Sunday (10th May 2015) – after  premiere on 26th April 2015 in Austria on FM/cable (and as webradio) – the 2nd part of the topic “The Harmonium in Indian classical music [subtitle: From the exile … from accompanying the solo instrument]”. The broadcasting is our commemoration of legendary harmonium maestro Pandit Purushottam Madhaavrao Walawalkar, who deceased on 13th January 2014.

The harmonium you can meet throughout whole India… and in almost all music genres on the South Asian continent. You can hear the unmistakable sound of the harmonium in Rabindra Sangeet ( Tagore songs ) in the Indian state of Bengal, in Natya Sangeet in Maharashtra as well as in the Indian film, for ghazals and Indian classical music.

The hand-operated, single-handed playing Harmonium is one of the most popular instruments in India. One finds the key instrument in many Indian households, in temples and Indian theaters. – And even can hear it on traveling in Indian railways, the main transport system of India.

The harmonium is used mainly as an accompanying instrument for vocal performers of Khayals, the modern vocal style in North Indian classical music or thumri-s of light Indian classical music, as well as in music teaching and for composing.

Samvadini - a modified version of harmonium to...

With technical innovations in the 70s, the Indian harmonium got its final name: Samvadini (derived from the Sanskrit word Samvad = harmony).

Among Sikhs, Muslims and Hindus this instrument is very popular for accompanying devotional prayer songs, such as Shabad-s, Kirtan-s and Bhajan-s. For Sikhs the harmonium is known as Vaja (or Baja  = “instrument you can play”). In some regions of Northern India it is called Peti (= wooden box).

On 13 January 2014 the harmonium player Pandit Purushottam Madhaavrao Walawalkar (born on 11th June 1923) has died. In Indian classical music Walawalkar counts on his instrument as the most important accompanying musician of the 20th century. In his memory we will present Purushottam Walawalkar on the harmonium through the entire show, accompanying the greatest vocal interpreters  of North Indian classics… e.g. Girija Devi , Shobha Gurtu , Kishori Amonkar , Bhimsen Joshi , Ulhas Kashalkar and Jitendra Abhisheki .
