The thread gets wet, the warp is wrecked,
the weaver goes away mad.
Kabir says, who created this?
Stop spreading yourself out thin,
worship Ram, it’s harsh,
this life-and-death ocean.
Kiski Kahani and Open Space invite you to Idhar Udhar, a concert by Prahladji Tipanya.
The Ramayana has been received by audiences in theatre, film, music, art, dance, song and storytelling. The Ramayana has always been an example of India’s diverse tradition, a tradition that speaks of plurality, a tradition that many of us today take for granted.
As part of our ongoing work with Kiski Kahani: The Ramayana Project, we invite you to celebrate the diversity of the Ramayana in music with Prahladji Tipanya.
About Prahladji Tipanya:
Prahladji Tipanya is one of the most compelling folk voices of Kabir in India today. He combines singing and exposition of Kabir in the Malwi folk style from Madhya Pradesh. Prahladji’s concerts are more than entertaining music. They are powerful engagements with the spiritual and social thought of the popular saint-poet Kabir. In Malwa he is admired and revered not only as a singer but also as a guru who speaks with great intensity on the message of Kabir. Thousands flock to his all-night concerts. He has also toured the USA, and is one of the principal protagonists in the quartet of films made by Shabnam Virmani on the pluralism of Kabir.
About the Concert:
On 4 December, 2012 Prahladji will sing at S M Joshi Hall. The focus of the concert will be on Kabir’s Ram.
Who was Kabir’s Ram? Was he the deity of popular Hindu mythology, incarnation of Vishnu and hero of the Ramayana? Or was Rama a universal sound, a vibration that can penetrate the many layers of distraction and delusion, to reach the threshold of a fundamental question: sagun or nirgun? can you find the tracks of a bird in the air? of a fish in the sea? …Linda Hess
