About the CD

My early training as a composer was grounded in both Indian classical music, through Dr. Manik Bhagat and western classical music, with such masters as Howard Fergusin in London and Nadia Boulanger in Paris. Yet my roots have always remaned in Indian music, and many compositions in this album reflect both aspects of my musical person, expressed through strongly evocative lines of pure melody but which are layered with harmonies.

Of all the elements, earth is the one with which we have the deepest, most emotional, personal relationship. This was recognized by our sages who described earth as mother, the nurturer, the sustainer of life; earth, who held within her womb not only the riches of Nature, but also her secreds, and tumults; earth, whose very creation was the intense birth of form out of the formless. So the concept lent itself to varying musical interpretations, ranging from the dramatic and awe-inspiring to the lyrical and tender.

In the first half, I have used selected passages from the beautiful Hymn to the earth from the Atharwa Veda, surely a hymn of all mankind, poetically descriptive of man's reverence for earth. In the section "Earth my Mother", I have chosen Raga Des for its deep sense of belonging, expressed with great sweetness and poignance. But the earth mother is also the female principle of fertility; thus, the tribal rhythms of the "Fertility Dance" are evocative of primeval rites in the worship and propitiation of the earth. "Earthquake" is a description in sound of terrifying upheaval and elemental rage: the destructive aspect.

The second half is a depiction of earth and tow other elements water and sky (heaven, space). In the sound of the oboe, we hear the pathos of the arid earth, them the joy when her thirst is slaked by rainfall, which also quickens her to renewed life. And the sounds of the French horn and flute recall the majesty of Dyaus, the Vedic god of Heaven, who, according to legend, is the father of all men, just as Prithvi, the earth, is the mother. The very last track is a celebration of the elemental mother.

I’ve received the package 2 days ago. The painting is as beautiful as I whished! I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
