Throwback Thursday With The Tabla Maestro: Zakir Hussain

Today, on Throwback Thursday, we celebrate the legendary tabla maestro, Zakir Hussain through some of his memorable performances.

Published

on

Zakir Hussain

Indian classical music is believed to be one of the toughest and most challenging musical forms prevalent in the present-day world. It is very often related to ancient myths and has an element of spirituality associated with it. It is pious and holds a much more deeper meaning to it as compared to modern-day music. One of the master practitioners of Hindustani classical music is Ustad Zakir Hussain, the very famous tabla player who is also a composer, music producer and film actor.

Born to the famous tabla player Ustad Allah Rakha, he had an inclination towards music since the onset of his life and was considered a child prodigy when he gave his first performance at the age of seven. His mastery over this art, however, was attained by a lot of hard-work and commitment. As a child, he rehearsed with his father from 3:00 AM to 6:00 AM early morning. Pretty tough, isn’t it? He worked with other famous instrumentalists like sitar maestro Ravi Shankar and soon began his international tours with up to 150 concerts a year. He featured in the famous album “Planet Drum” wherein he had a chance to work with outstanding drummers from all over the world. The album won the prestigious Grammy Award twice, first for “Best World Music album” and “Best Contemporary World Music Album”. He has been honoured with awards of national importance like Padma Shree and Padma Bhushan for his remarkable work in the field of music.

Indians like Zakir Hussain manifest the beauties of Indian culture and heritage and play a key role in demonstrating it to the world. His truthfulness, loyalty and commitment towards his art makes him shine out as a great tabla artist, not just in India but around the globe.

Today, on Throwback Thursday, we celebrate this legendary tabla maestro through some of his memorable performances.

Holi

वृन्दावन की होली लठमार,
मथुरा की होली फुलमार|
रंगों की आई फुहार,
मुबारख हो होली का त्योहार|

The festival of colours is here to set the mood of life in celebration and joy. Mythologically, there are numerous legends associated with it, like the tradition of burning Holika or the ‘Holika dahan’ or celebration of the death of Ogress Pootana who tried to kill infant Krishna by feeding poisonous milk to it and many more. Eventually, it signifies the power and victory of truth, morality and goodness over evil.

May the vibrant colours of life fill every phase of your existence. A very happy Holi to all! We bring you some shades of dance, music and comedy this Holi.

Powerful And Inspiring Messages This Women’s Day

This women’s day, let us take a look at these short videos which carry important and inspirational messages which every woman needs to hear and know.

Published

on

Women's Day

Simone de Beauvoir invokes her book The Second Sex (1949), the famous sentence when she writes ‘One is not born a woman; rather, one becomes a woman’. I don’t think womanhood could be stated any more clearly. A child is not born with limitations, it is the conditioning of the society which thrusts passive notions, boundaries and limitations on womanhood.

A woman is not any less abled than a man, yet she is undermined when it comes to important tasks and is expected to tend to get household duties and keep her man satisfied. The fight for respect and equal rights has been going on and will be going on until the world becomes a safer and better place for women all around the globe.

Hence, this women’s day, let us take a look at these short videos which carry important and inspirational messages which every woman needs to hear and know.

I am not a type‘ is an insightful and beautiful piece by Roopam Sharma describing that women do not fit into any stereotype. They are what they want to be and that is absolutely okay.

Credits: YouTube (Live By FnP Media)

‘Story of a Housewives’ is a short film directed by Raja Ram Mukerji which revolves around the different personas a woman is expected to live up to. It follows the story of an average working married woman who efficiently works for and looks after her family but all she wants in return is some respect, consideration and love.

Credits: YouTube (Half Tickets)

Priya Malik composes and narrates a powerful poem titled ‘Art Has no Gender’ which reflects on how women are associated with their gender first and their achievements often take a back seat. She talks about famous and outstanding women who made a mark on the world, and yet, were looked at as women first and then scientists, artists or poets.

Credits: YouTube (UnErase Poetry)

‘The Many Roles of a Woman’ is a short video which defies the confines of womanhood and expresses women as humans first, humans with their feelings, passions, desires, ambitions and demeanors irrespective of what society demands from their gender. 

Credits: YouTube (Hauterfly)

‘Tum Kaise Ho’ is a sweet song by Tony Kakkar which urges women to embrace themselves as they are, to be comfortable with the imperfections and to know that they’re all beautiful in their own way.

Credits: YouTube (Desi Music Factory)

U-Turn is a short film written by Supriya Shukla which reminds women to hold themselves in high esteem and respect themselves. It talks of the issue of domestic violence and how no woman deserves to be treated that way, and should raise her voice, if and when subjected to such treatment.

Throwback Thursday With The Nightingale of India: Lata Mangeshkar

Truly, one of the greatest musical legends of all times, we celebrate the Nightingale of India, Lata Mangeshkar through some of her most amazing songs.

Published

on

Lata Mangeshkar

A beautiful voice can soothe an anxious heart, it can comfort a troubled soul and put an insomniac person to sleep. The power of a beautiful voice is aptly portrayed by India’s nightingale – Lata Mangeshkar. A singing sensation and a charming lady, she has recorded songs in over a thousand Hindi films. Dive in and let’s take a look at her inspiring life.

Lata Mangeshkar was born in 1929, Indore, to a classical singer/theatre artist and his wife. When her father passed away at the age of 13, their family friend Master Vinayak took care of them and helped Lata pursue a career in singing and acting. She took lessons in Hindustani Classical Music and she worked on some songs accompanied by small gigs as an actress. She was later mentored by Ghulam Haider, who gave her a major breakthrough in the song ‘Dil Mera Toda’, in the movie ‘Majboor’. She received some criticism on her Maharashtrian accent, while she sang Hindi/Urdu songs, an ordeal she decided to overcome by taking Urdu lessons. An unusual event in Lata’s life stands out when she was poisoned by slow poison. She was bedridden for nearly 3 months and was plagued by fatigue and weakness. She was then closely taken of care by Bollywood lyricist Majrooh Sultanpuri.

Undeterred, Lata carried on bravely and went on to sing the famous heart rendering song ‘Aye Mere Watan ke Logon’, which created an emotional and powerful aura that the eyes of the then Prime Minister, Jawahar Lal Nehru, were filled with tears. A versatile singer, she sang 185 songs in Bengali apart from her music in Hindi and Urdu.

It is an honour to have Indians like Lata Mangeshkar among us, who set a remarkable example, not only in their time but for the generations to come.  On this throwback thursday, we celebrate the Nightingale of India, Lata Mangeshkar through some of her most amazing songs.
