An hour of beautiful raga music by Ravi Shankar (sitar), Parthasarathy Desikan (vocal), Jayanthi Kumaresh (veena) and Vishwa Mohan Bhatt (slide guitar/mohan veena), in Wereldmineralen, Friday April 29th. 2011, 19.00-20.00 (dutch time), a broadcast I’ve produced for The Concertzender.
Esa nina me tiene loco a mi por su modo de caminar 🙂
Wiel Coerver overleden in Kerkrade… hier een glimp van zijn wereldvermaarde voetbaltrainingsmethode.
Below four pictures I took of pianist/keyboardplayer Zoe Rahman at Roots Open Air 2009 in Amsterdam, while she was playing with the band of Natacha Atlas. Only recently I found out she’s also a very good jazz pianist, making her own music, beautiful music! She’s Irish with Bengali cultural and family roots, a mixed background which fits her nicely – I think – in Natacha Atlas’s band 🙂 Below also three YouTube-videos of the Zoe Rahman Trio, featuring in two of the clips Zoe’s brother Idris, who does the beautiful sensuous clarinet playing.
Oceanic – Part 1, a beautiful, atmospheric track of Anoushka playing a sitar-duet with her father. Really touching. When I publish this message, it’s 7 April 2011, Ravi Shankar’s 91st birthday. Happy Birthday, Pandit ! 🙂
The beautiful Bollywood-film ‘Aan’ (1952) was once brought to my attention by Concertzender-producer Henk Braaksma, who considers this his favourite Bollywood movie.
The complete movie
For the Concertzender Henk Braaksma produced a programme on the soundtrack of this film, see this link (and then listen on demand there by clicking on the speaker icon on top of that page).
The beautiful opening song of ‘Aan’: Aaj Mere Mann Mein Sakhi
Art thou troubled? Music will calm thee…
Bach on wood in the forest, a joy of man’s desiring 🙂
Great YouTube-upload showing one of the great scenes from Jenufa. I would love to see the complete documentary film.
