Concept: Jayanthi Kumaresh
Presentation: Jayanthi Kumaresh (Saraswati veena), Charulatha Ramanujam (violin)
Supported by Patri Satishkumar (mridangam), Giridhar Udupa (ghatam)
The event is based on how the supreme forces of the feminine and masculine—the lasya and tandava—intertwine aesthetically in the form of blissful music.
These elements are represented by melodies and rhythms blending through the ragas and talas of the South Indian tradition. As the divine feminine manifests Herself in the form of the veena—the musical instrument in the hands of Saraswati, the Hindu Goddess of learning and music—the musical dialogue is aptly led by Jayanthi Kumaresh, a well-known veena player. While the silence between the notes of the veena is masterfully filled by the violin, leading to a seamless melody, the robust masculine aspect of tandava manifests through the pulsating rhythms of two percussion instruments: mridangam and ghatam.
The lasya and tandava thus join hands to create a colourful spectrum of sound textures, and the music thus formed, with its myriad forms of expression, reminds us of how even the opposite forces coexist seamlessly to make life beautiful and meaningful.
