“One good thing about music, when it hits you, you don’t feel pain”.

Thus spoke Bob Marley (1945-1981), the famous Jamaican singer and songwriter, about the power of music. From the most casual to the most formal, every activity, every endeavor of human existence is in one form or another, quite inextricably linked with music. Music pervades our lives and our beings. In many an instance, music appears quite unexpectedly in our lives.

Back in 1981, the Minister of Culture of France was a gentleman by the name Jack Lang. He appointed Maurice Fleuret as the Director of Music and Dance. One observation Maurice had about the cultural ethos of France – “the music everywhere, the concert nowhere”. He conducted a sample survey of the French population. The survey brought out some very interesting results; the most important one was which established that almost half the population was adept at playing one or another type of musical instrument.

Armed with this result, Maurice dreamt of bringing this talent for music, out in the open. Working with his minister, Maurice set out to design a method which would allow common people to be able to perform for others. From this pursuit was born the concept of ‘Fête de la Musique’ or the ‘Festival of Music’. After preparing and communicating for many weeks, finally the date for this public festival was decided as 21st June. In the year 1982, this event was rolled out across the length and breadth of France.

Ever since, the phenomena has spread to practically everywhere. This festival is now held in more than a thousand cities across 170 countries.

One basic feature of this celebration is that it is free. The artists and musicians perform for free. And also, all performances are free for the viewing public.

When writing about music, I have occasionally fallen back on the 1985 film ‘Sur Sangam’, for a suitable song for the post. Once again today, as I write to celebrate this worldwide event, I bring to the readers another wonderful song that tells about the nature and practice of music. The beginning words of this song lay out such an adept definition,

saadh re mann sur ko saadh re
ek mann ko doosre se baandh re

Yes, a force that brings together and binds the minds and hearts of people. Need I say more – the experience of the regulars of this musical bandwagon will speak for itself.

As I noted in my write up for the song “Aaye Sur Ke Panchhi Aaye”, as far as the memory serves, the film ‘Sur Sangam’ is probably the last film that I can remember, that has music as its central theme. After 1985, I cannot recall any other Hindi film built on the theme of music.

The film is a Hindi remake of the iconic Telegu film ‘Shankarabharnam’. It has been produced by V Ramesh for Vijay Madhavi Pictures, Madras and is directed by K Vishwanath. The eminent star cast of this film includes Girish Karnad, Jayaprada, Sachin, Sadhna Singh, Deven Verma, Bharti Achrekar, Paintal, Tabassum, Asrani, Bhushan Tiwari, Dina Pathak, Mohan Choti, OP Singh, Jeet Mohan, Sulabha Deshpande, SP Dubey, Urmila, Master Akash Singh and Baby Mamta.

The film has a set of very wonderful 11 songs, all written by Vasant Dev, and set to wonderful classical melodies by Lakshmikant Pyaarelal. Five songs of this film are already showcased on our blog. And the sixth makes its appearance today on the occasion of the World Day of Music. The singing voice is that of Rajan Sajan Misra.

May there be delightful music today, and every day in our lives.

Hullo Atuldom

These days we have people from all walks of life connecting with each other over video calls, chat groups coming together on various online platforms etc. Similarly there are people who are going ‘live’ on Facebook and YouTube. On these ‘live’ days they showcase their talents in singing and dancing etc. I have watched a few and must say, rather admit, that this period of Lock-down is helping everyone rediscover their passion in singing and other art forms. All the best to all of them

Some videos of these ‘live’ acts are doing the rounds on the social media called Whatsapp. My husband forwarded me one such video which had the South Indian stalwart SP Balasubramaniam singing one of his popular songs from the 1979 Telugu movie ‘Shankarabharanam’.

That movie had some great songs which were based on Carnatic Ragas and told the story of an exponent of classical music Sankara Sastri (JV Somayajulu) and his ardent fan cum disciple Tulsi (Manju Bhargavi). The movie was written and directed by K Viswanath, had music by KV Mahadevan and lyrics were by V Sundararama Murthy. K Viswanath later remade this movie in Hindi as ‘Sur Sangam’ in 1985.

The Hindi version had Girish Karnad and Jaya Prada playing the roles of Pandit Shivshankar Shastri and Tulsi. The film made its debut on the blog on 19th May, 2013 with the song “Mai Ka Piya Bulaave Apne Mandirva“. (In that sense, it is like a seven-year challenge. 🙂 )

Our dear Sudhir ji had posted one song from this movie on the occasion of World Music day in 2017 “Aaye Sur Ke Panchhi Aaye“. The movie has eleven songs in all with “Aaye Sur Ke Panchhi Aaye” appearing as two parts in the movie. Then we also have the song Dhanya Bhaag Sewa Ka Awsar Paaya which was shared by Khyatiben in July 2014 as part of the build up to the 10000th post. Sudhir ji then later wrote a heartfelt tribute to Girish Karnad in his post on the song “Hey Shiv Shankar Hey Karunakar” last year.

I feel Sudhir ji has given us a good biography of Girish Karnad in his post last year. So I shall go directly to the next song from this film. In this song we see the Shastri ji teaching a small boy a classical bhajan. He is unaware that the boy is actually the son of his fan/disciple Tulsi. He feels that the little boy has a lot of potential to take over the mantle from him. In fact the second anatara shows the child singing what he has learnt from the guru and the mother envisions the guru himself. The song is in the vocals of the Mishra brothers – Rajan and Sajan Mishra, with Lata Mangeshkar. Lyricist is Vasant Dev with Laxmikant-Pyaarelal as the music composers. I must admit here that I have no knowledge about the Raag or Taal that this song is in. I expect knowledgeable readers to help here.

Thinking of the versatile actor Girish Karnad today on his 82nd birthday.

Song – Jaaun Torey Charan Kamal Par Vaari  (Sur Sangam) (1985) Singer – Rajan-Sajan Misra, Lata Mangeshkar, Lyrics – Vasant Dev, MD – Laxmikant Pyaarelal

Today, 21st June is designated as the World Music Day. The reminders checked in quite late in the afternoon today. The historical details about this event are available on the internet, and our dear Arun ji has also summarized them in a brief post on the Whatsapp group.

As I set down thinking about this event, and to search out an appropriate song for today, my mind almost immediately went to the 1985 film ‘Sur Sangam’.  In my mind, this is probably the best film on the theme of classical music, in the recent decades. Times are past that classical music and the legends of this art form used to be the central themes of many a film, especially from the historical perspective, in the decades that coincide with the golden era of Hindi film music. Historical persona such as Tansen and Baiju, Narsi Mehta and Meerabai, Kalidas and Soordas, Kabir and Rani Roopmati have been central themes and central characters of many a film till the decade of 1970s. Beyond that, I cannot easily recall a film whose theme and storyline is based primarily on classical music.
