About the CD

Episode Nine

Manipuri – Ashtapati by Darshana Jhaveri
Pontha Jagoi by Darshana Jhaveri & Latasana Devi
FOLK ARTS OF MANIPUR – Sankirtana & Pung Cholam
The dances of Manipur, a North Eastern state of India are influenced by the religious movements of Vaishnavism, the worship of Lord Vishnu. A sense of music and rhythm is inbuilt in the citizens of Manipur. The classical dance form of Manipur is Manipuri where the dancers wear veil, along with cylindrical mirrored skirts and ornaments that create a dream-like effect. After Indian independence, Manipuri was popularized by three dancers – the Jhaveri Sisters. One of them, Darshana Jhaveri, explains the intricate movements of the Manipuri style of dancing and performs an Ashtapati. Somana Kunitha, Marammana Kunitha and Kasale. This is followed by “PONTHA JAGOI” a dance competition between Krishna and Radha in Manipuri performed by Darshana Jhaveri and her senior disciple Latasana Devi. This is followed by the all male ensemble of Manipur performing Sankirtana with symbols and dholak. The male dancers also perform a vigorous, rhythmic “Pung Cholam” with the Dholak in hand.

Episode Ten
Chau – Seraikella Chau, Purulia Chau, and Mayurbhanj Chau
Folk Arts of Punjab – Bhangda & Giddha
Another variety of dance in Orissa is Chau, a stylized masked dance form. Chau combines folk, tribal and martial traditions and yet covers the Nritta, Natya, and Nritya aspects of classical dance. It is a complex combination of the folk and classical traditions. Three styles of Chau exist in the three different regions of Bihar, West Bengal and Orissa, Seraikella Chau, Purulia Chau, and Mayurbhanj Chau respectively. Each character has a special mask unique to that character only. This episode features extracts of five different Chau items. From Eastern India we move westwards to the Golden temple of Amritsar, the famous Sikh temple in Punjab. The dancers take turns to execute complex acrobatic movements. From the vigorous Bhangda performed by men-folk of Punjab performing a graceful, gentle Giddha. This number is performed to celebrate a wedding and is characterized by its spontaneous energy.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
