Al Gromer Khan: Sufi

 Lisää ostoskoriin

sufilaisuus, intialainen musiikki,

One feels drawn to certain types of persons with certain preferences: rose oil from exquisite flasks, and sandalwood oil, types of sound, the sky on 'wide open sky days'. One tries to make spiritual sense of the bizarre cultural setting that one finds oneself in.

One draws inspiration from the East, knowing well that the East is more than ready to sell out. One emotionally connects with the former periods of Islam, feels at home in and inspired by the intricacies of Persian and Arabic art and design and irresistibly drawn to the sufis, the ecstatic freewheelers.

The intense poetry of longing of the sufi will somehow find its way, independently from, and transcending- or should I say: 'trance-scending' tradition, culture, and color of skin. Why is it that, when thinking of the great saints of India like Zipra Baba of Nasirabad, Meher Baba, Swami Samarth, Nityananda of Ganeshpuri, Sai Baba of Shirdi, Nizam ud-din Auliya, one never even begins to think of their respective original religion? How many of those giants of spirituality, would you say, were Muslims? Does it matter? No. Why not try and connect with them directly, without concerning ourselves with their original religious backgrounds?

The one person to translate music to a higher and universal plane and who bewitched my life so utterly with the high and intricate poetry inside music is sitar player Ustad Vilayat Khan; and when I spoke to him about sufism, he said, "my religion is music." This turn of phrase wasn't entirely new, but in the case of Vilayat Khan it gained new meaning: he managed to demonstrate how just a small fragment of music can open a door to another reality, turning it into a base for sadhana. That's the kind of sufism I like: one that works from direct and authentic experience.

A Gromer Khan is a German-born sitar master with eleven best-selling albums to his credit; his unique style of performance, selfclescribed as Paisley Music - traditional Indian melodies intertwined with electronic ambient keyboards has won him international acclaim.

If we relax and let our breath come and go unhindered, this power will be transferred to us automatically. Body and soul will be flooded by a soft stillness.

The music flows evenly and naturally like the breath and the waves of the ocean. The light and soft melodies of the flute create a dreamy Indian atmosphere.

Deva Premal: Embrace

 Lisää ostoskoriin

intialainen musiikki, meditaatiomusiikki, vocal,

Embrace finds this best-selling singer at the height of her art, expressing the ancient wisdom of mantra through a contemporary musical vision.

Deva Premal's gorgeous voice, rich and assured, floats above a cool, sensual groove provided by some of today's finest world fusion artists.

Produced by Miten and Kit Walker (Walela, Kitaro, Pagan Love Orchestra), Embrace features a rich, elegantly developed musical dynamic, due in large part to virtuoso performances by such top flight musicians as Jai Uttal (dotar and distinctive vocals), Kit Walker (keyboards, grand piano, Hammond B3), Nepali native Manose (bansuri), Miten (vocals, guitar), Ty Burhoe (a star protégé of Zakir Hussain) and Marquinho Brasil (assorted exotic hand percussion).

"The high chanteuse of chant, Deva, is a pillar of originality in the grand garden of Indian music. You might say she's to Sanskrit Mantras what Enya is to Celtic music. Her smooth soulful voice, which resides in the lower octaves, haunts atmospheric, lightly rhythmic, ethereal soundscapes skillfully crafted by her partner Miten.

"Together they take listeners on a journey into the depths of the soul that doesn't forget to stop at the heart. The music's easy on the ears, spiritually provocative and contains enough mass appeal to make even the yoga-phobic stir. Throw in a duet with Jai Uttal (Om Ram Ramaya) and you have an album that will get anyone's chakras in an uproar."

Indian notation system

Indian classical music is never written down and is therefore never played from a musical score. Indeed, it would be detrimental to the music because there has never been any notation system developed that can record all the subtle nuances which characterize this system of music. The music is taught in the oral tradition and preferably on a one-toone basis. However, there is the need to at least write something down in order to remember various musical exercises and for those interested in music theory. The fundamental note is always called "Sa". There is no standard pitch reference in the Indian system so Sa can be any note. In other words, it is simply the musician's individual fundamental pitch that he or she will always use. In general, though, it will be around C sharp for male singers and most musical instruments and G sharp for female singers.

Assuming a fundamental pitch for C (for the sake of`simplicity), the notation system with the corresponding approximate Western equivalents are as follows:

Other terminology

Ragas The word "raga" is derived from the Sanskrit "ranja" which means to please, color, or tinge. It is essentially a scale with a fixed ascending and descending order of notes. Within this framework are contained specific approaches to certain notes and musical expressions or phrases (pakad) that differentiate one raga from another. In the North, a raga is largely improvised apart from small fixed compositions in the gat section that act as a returning point for the tabla and instrumentalist or singer. A raga is not free form music. It is subject to very strict disciplines which should not be deviated from. A raga is not something that is composed, but rather something that is discovered.

Alap This is the slow, non-rhythmic, introduction where the scale and some of the recognizable characteristics of the raga are gradually revealed.

Jod A continuation of alap but with an element of free rhythm.

Jhalla This is the section of the alap where the tempo is gradually increased until it reaches the final climactic moment. This signifies the end of the major division in a raga that is played without strict rhythm and, of course, percussion accompaniment. On the sitar the chikari or rhythm strings are used predominantly in the jhalla section.

Gat This is the last movement. It can be subdivided both in terms of tempo and tala (time signature). This is where the tabla joins the recital, resulting in a whole new musical dynamic within the raga. The interplay between sitar and tabla, where each can challenge the other with increasingly complex rhythmic interplay and yet still eventually resolve on the sum (beat one of a cycle), provides the enthralling tension and release that is so unique to North Indian classical music.

Vilambit Slow tempo.

Drut Fast tempo.

Teental A rhythmic cycle of 16 beats.

Dadra A rhythmic cycle of G beats

Dhun A folk melody played in classical style.


Raga Hemant Scale format:
Ascending
Descending
Rhythmic Cycle: Vilambit Teental This raga is in four movements; Alap, Jod, Jhalla and finally Vilambit Gat.

Raga Lalit Scale format:
Ascending
Descending
Rhythmic Cycle: Vilambit Teental and Drut Teental The raga is in three movement; Alap, Vilambit Gat and Drut Gat.

Bhairavi Dhun Scale format:
Ascending
Descending
Rhythmic Cycle: Dadra This track is played in light classical style. It consists of an alap and an improvisation, accompanied by tabla, based on a folk melody.

The Recording

The entire project was recorded at the Nav Sanchar studio situated near the small town of Shivpur. Shivpur is where Pandit Ravi Shankar has his family home, and the town is some 30 kilometers from Varanasi (Benares).

The studio is in a complex run by the Catholic church to foster the arts. We used their facilities with the exception of the actual recording equipment. We took our own portable hard disk digital multi-track recorder. The sound of Indian musical instruments is such that any speed fluctuation in recording equipment becomes very noticeable on instruments such as sitar or tanpura. A digital system is well suited to this music because of the absolute speed accuracy inherent in this equipment.

The Musicians

Dr. Krishna Chakravarty

Dr. Krishna Chakravarty studied sitar from a very young age under Professor Ram Chakravarty and later under Pt. Ravi Shankar. Today she is considered to be one of the best sitarists in India and a detailed list of her achievements is far too long to list in this booklet. The following are some highlights.

She has a BA and Doctor of Music from Banaras Hindu University, a Master of Music (gold medallist) from Prayag Sangit Samiti, Allahabad and an MA in World Music from the Wesleyan University, Connecticut, United States. She is currently an associate professor of sitar at the Faculty of Performing Arts, Banaras Hindu University. As a visiting artist she has taught North Indian classical music to graduate and undergraduate students at Wesleyan University, and also conducted seminars and practical classes at the University of Pennsylvania in the United States.

She has given numerous performances in India, Australia, Holland, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, United States, Canada, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Brazil and Argentina. She is now "A-Top" grade performer for All India Radio and Indian Television. This recording is her second release in the United States, following her debut album Ananda on Fortuna Records (17046-2). She is also one of the premiere artists on Dancing to the Flute (Celestial Harmonies 13135-2) featuring Indian music. That recording was commissioned by The Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia, for a 1997 exhibition, Dancing to the Flute, on music and dance in Indian art commemorating the 50th anniversary of Indian independence.

Many of the top tabla players have accompanied her including such masters as Pt. Shamta Prasad, Pt. Kishan Maharaj, Ustad Zakir Hussain, and Shankar Ghosh. She was the 1989 recipient of Honorary Fellowship of the Alexander Humboldt Foundation.

Vinod Gangadhar Lele

Vinod Gangadhar Lele studied tabla under Pt. Kashinath Khandekar of the Banaras gharana (school). Vinod obtained the degree of Sangeet Praveen (Tabla) from Prayag Sangeet Samiti, Allahabad, securing a gold medal. He won first prizes for the tabla in the Uttar Pradesh Sangeet Natak Academy music competition in 1982 and in the All India Radio music competition in 1993.

His style of playing is characterized by liveliness, excellent control over laya (rhythm and tempo) and impressive dexterity. He is an "A" grade artist of All India Radio and Doordarshan (Television) since 1984. He has accompanied many famous artists including Smt. Girija Devi, Dr. N. Rajam, Pt. Rajan-Sahan Mishra and Pt. Budhaditya Mukherjee as well as Dr. Krishna Chakravarty.

Prem Joshua: Secret of the Wind

LOPPUUNMYYTY

prem joshua, intialainen musiikki,

Seemingly from nowhere, heralded only by the distant howling of wolves and a dramatic crack of thunder, the Shaman appears. In a moment his dance of divine destiny is begun, slowly at first as a single drum helps him pick out the path of ancient footsteps, an instinctive movement drawn deep from the mystical well of intuition. Soon the rhythm swells as the drumbeat deepens in intensity and the medicine man is lost in trance in this, Phil Thornton's homage to the arcane powers of these mysterious priests. The circle of sound is soon swirling with bells, chimes, pipes and the background resonance of the didgeridoo as the ritual climbs to a spiritual frenzy where animal sounds signify the Shaman's union with the natural world. Like members of the tribal audience, framed by the flickering flames of night, we too are drawn by the hypnotic power of the music into an empathic awareness of our extra-sensory potential.

Music is the nearest at hand, the most orderly, the most delicate and the most perfect of all bodily pleasures; it is also the only one which is equally helpful to all ages of man.
JOHN RUSKIN

Prem Joshua: Tales of a Dancing River

LOPPUUNMYYTY

prem joshua, intialainen musiikki,

On this album Prem Joshua combines the magical atmosphere of a great variety of Eastern instruments (sitar, bamboo-flutes, santoor etc.) with the sounds of soprano saxophone and keyboards to take the listener on an adventurous and harmonious musical journey along a "Dancing River" from its source to the ocean.

Life is just a river, a long river.

Each river, small or big, dissolves into the ocean, finds its way without any guide, without any sutras, without any masters. It may go astray, zigzag, but finally it reaches to the ocean. And that reaching to the ocean is becoming the ocean. That is the rebirth. That's what we mean by meditation. That's what we mean by the Zen Manifesto. Every river is destined to disappear one day into the ocean. Go dancingly, go joyfully. There is no need to be worried, there is no need to be hurried. The ocean is waiting - you can take your time, but take your time with joy, not with tensions and anxieties. Rejoice and dance and sing and love, and finally you are going to disappear into the ocean.

mantramusiikki, vocal, intialainen musiikki,

Fusing the spiritual richness and beauty of ancient Sikh chants--written by late 15th-century composer Guru Nanak (the first guru of the Sikhs)--with lush, contemporary Enya-esque production values, Snatam Kaur Khalsa's music is both spiritually enriching and moving, within a pop-music framework. It's a style not unlike Natalie Merchant or Sarah McLachlan, but it is rooted in more ancient traditions. This is the follow-up to Kaur Khalsa's premiere album, PREM, and features more of that work's elegant, simple compositions.

Kaur's haunting voice answers herself in the chorus creating a hypnotizing, soothing, repetitive mantra-folk sound, over a rich accompaniment of tablas, acoustic guitar, warm gushing synth pads, and piano. In addition to its soothing meditative qualities, this album is also the perfect choice for relaxing by the pool, or slow dancing by a late night fire.
