An Evening of Poetry and Music with Sourendro – Soumyojit featuring Sharmila Tagore
( Approx. 90 mins)
In association with Sahachari Foundation Events
There is perhaps no facet of human life that is explored so exhaustively through the arts as the feeling of ‘love’. The theme has inspired many poets, both in the East and the West, resulting in some exquisite works of poetry in myriad languages, some of which are set to music and have become haunting melodies. Spring is a season of love and romance. Sharmila Tagore, an iconic veteran actress known for her brilliant work in Bengali and Hindi cinema, will recite some evergreen love poems penned by poets from Tagore, Shakespeare, Rosetti to Browning and Agha Shahid Ali and other classical as well as modern poets. Juxtaposing poetry with song will be musical renditions by the duo, Sourendro (piano) and Soumyojit (vocal music). The selection of songs, exploring various hues of love, will span across many genres: ghazal, thumri, geet and film songs. Love is in the air. Come, soak in it.
