“Music is an image of the composer’s soul. It is a combination of expression and creativity and when combined best, it is a form of meditation that helps in cleansing and healing of the human mind. Swar Dhwani Festival 2024 is an effort to showcase such soulful music performed by young artists who bring in a fresh perspective to the hundreds of years old cultural heritage. Swaranjali has been instrumental in promoting such art of the youth across India over three decades,” says renowned artist Vidhushi Barnalee Sarkar, Bengaluru.
“Jugalbandi in Bhartiya music is not parallel to duet. Duets in my opinion, where both the performers take the similar path to reach a common goal. In other words it could be called a preconceived, well- rehearsed presentation of a composition. Jugalbandi in my opinion is reaching the common goal by taking different paths. Both the performers may not think similar, their abilities, experience and approach to the aesthetics might differ, yet they work hard to enhance and establish the purity and beauty of the Raag. For example, a garland of roses; every flower looks and works to enhance the beauty of the garland. Every flower might be different but when put together in a flower vase, they contribute to the overall beauty.
I will present a jugalbandi along with young and talented Dr. Bipul Kumar Roy on flute and Santoor respectively. Shri Siddharth Chakraborty and Shri Ankit Parekh will accompany us on Tabla and Pakhawaj respectively,” remarks Pandit Chetan Joshi ji.
