Concept & curation: Shekhar Sen
Singers: Shekhar Sen, Manjusha Patil Kulkarni, Abhijeet Ghoshal & others
For thousands of years, the Indian subcontinent has been home to several faiths and religious beliefs. In fact, some of them have originated in this land, which is distinguished for its multiethnic and multilingual ethos. No wonder, therefore, that multiple movements of bhakti (devotion) were born here and continue to flourish despite constraints and challenges of the modern times.
Consequently, the devotional and spiritual positions held by society at various points in history, have had ample reflections in the domain of the performing arts.
This event is conceptualised, curated and led by Shekhar Sen, a celebrated music composer, lyricist and actor who is internationally known for his superhit mono-act musical plays: Tulsidas, Kabir, Vivekanand and Soordas. The presentation will provide glimpses of artistic works conveying devotional leanings, especially those created during the last century by various artistes.
Starting with the reformist movement led by the great visionary V. D. Paluskar in 1922, artistes such as Shekhar Sen, Manjusha Patil Kulkarni, Abhijeet Ghoshal and others, will take the audience on a musical journey through the century with an array of forms from various regions: ranging from pad, bhajan, abhang, shabad kirtan, baul, to patriotic song, film song, etc. in various languages. The event will also include some interesting and unknown treasures presented by artistes from the folk and tribal communities from the remotest places of our multicultural country.
