India Foundation for the Arts (IFA) is delighted to bring you On-Demand Streaming of a Ghatam Ensemble as a Fundraiser for IFA, in association with Udupa Foundation.
The clay pot is one of the most ubiquitous musical instruments across world cultures. Known as the ‘Ghatam’ in Carnatic music, the pot is today integral to South Indian classical music.
What happens when a team of Ghatam players come together to make music? What are the stories and the sounds that emerge from the modest clay pot? Much like a group of people relaxing around a hearth after the toil of a long day, the artists here come together to regale in rhythmic conversations laden with gentle whispers, sparkling banter, and profound meditations. Listen to this exclusive ghatam ensemble as the artists weave a tapestry of melody and rhythm on the ghatam.
This ensemble piece is composed and led by one of the greatest ghatam exponents Sukanya Ramgopal. She is accompanied by her students Giridhar Udupa, Ganesh Murthy, Sachin Deviprasad, Srinidhi R Koundinya, and Sumana Chandrashekar.
Your donations through Donor Passes will help IFA to continue grantmaking, ensuring that funds are made available to many more artists across our programmes.
Sukanya Ramgopal, Giridhar Udupa, Ganesh Murthy, Sachin Deviprasad, Srinidhi R Koundinya and Sumana Chandrashekar.
