My world without Music is impossible and incomplete! And this I have realized veryyyy late 🙂 Better late than never!!
When I thought of writing a saree story keeping World Music Day in mind, was not sure why this is THE DAY. Yes I was ignorant 🙁
At times,these short notes connecting saree, is not only jerking my imagination power but also adding knowledge, I must admit!
Since school-days, I have always known 21 June as the Summer Solstice. With my surprise I came to realise there lies the connection of World Music day too.
The concept of an all-day musical celebration on the days of the solstice was originated by American musician Joel Cohen, who spent two seasons as a producer of musical radio programs for the French National Radio (France Musique.) The idea later was adapted as a national celebration each June 21 in France and made official by the French Minister of Culture, Jack Lang. The festival later became celebrated in 120 countries around the world.
Officially it was termed The Fête de la Musique( meaning Make Music Day) eventually World Music Day is an annual music celebration taking place on June 21, the first day of summer in cities around the world.
21/100 of #100sareepact is one of my all-time favorites! It has turned very old now, but I can’t leave and offer this specific piece to anyone.
Chrome Yellow base and Red bordered light Taant is wonderful cotton piece which connects the Bengal root and handloom touch.
The fabric -paintings portraying musical instruments, abstract musical figures in the Anchaal beautifully bond the music and passion.
Wonderful neat sketches of tabla -bayan, beena , banshi are captivating….
Crazy me and Crazy shoot of mine!
Since morning I gathered all the instruments I possess and have a hang of them…
Had to add গীতবিতান (Gitabitan) by Tagore for the shot, otherwise the Music Day would not have been completed!
I stop here with my word‘s busy noise….
I pray, your imagination can hear my harmonium and voice….
Let this musical collage flow and I wish if you can hum one of your favourite tune… I would be the happiest if I can touch your inner strings through my #sareestory…..
