A Tribute to Legendary Indian Composers
Supported by HSBC India
Kazi Nazrul Islam (1899-1976) and Lalon Fakir (1774-1890) are two iconic Bangla poet-philosophers who have had a far-reaching impact on the socio-cultural fabric of Bengal. Nazrul has left behind a huge repository of poetry, and songs referred as Nazrul Geeti, comprising nearly 4,000 works cutting across diverse genres. Fakir’s works embody a beautiful blend of bhakti and Sufism. He firmly believed in the power of music to alter the intellectual and emotional state in order to be able to understand and appreciate life itself.
Gulzar is a celebrated poet, writer, lyricist and film director whose works have also been influenced by Bangla poetry and literature. He will recite his Hindi translations of select works of both these “rebel” poets.
Ajoy Chakrabarty has had the privilege of training with several teachers including the legendary maestro Jnan Prakash Ghosh and Munawar Ali Khan, son and disciple of Bade Ghulam Ali Khan. Today, he is regarded as a multidimensional vocalist, composer and guru, representing Patiala gharana. In his inimitable style, he will showcase some select compositions of Nazrul as well as Fakir in varied styles: dhrupad, dhamar, khayal, thumri, ghazal, tappa, geet and baul.
