Interview: Internationally Acclaimed Rabindrasangeet Artist Shreya Guhathakurta

Shreya GuhathakurtaCleveland / Pittsburgh, Oct 3, 2012 (Washington Bangla Radio) Internationally acclaimed Rabindrasangeet singer Shreya Guhathakurta chats with Arijit Chakraborty of Washington Bangla Radio during Shreya's 2012 North American tour in this interview.

As most of our audience is aware of, Shreya is a grand-daughter of Shubho Guhathakurta, founder of Dakshini and Gitabitan Tagore music and arts schools in Kolkata. Shreya therefore naturally grew up in an environment of Rabindrasangeet. Though her institutional training on Rabindrasangeet is from Dakshini, given her family background she has been fortunate enough to learn from stalwarts like Kanika Bandopadhyay who Shreya considers to be a second grandmother. Shreya took lessons from Mohordi from age 7 and is still learning music from her uncle Sudeb Guha Thakurta.



GANDU - A Bengali film by Q

Bengali Movie GANDU a film by QKolkata film-maker Q (Qaushiq Mukherjee) has completed shooting of his next movie titled "Gandu".

Listen to Washington Bangla Radio's exclusive and intimate interview with Q (Qaushiq Mukherjee) online HERE »

At this time, very limited information has been posted at the official facebook group. Tagged "underground" and "extreme", there is a ominous warning: "Gandu will change your idea of a Bengali film. Enter at your own risk."

The word Gandu, probably of Hindi origin, is a slang for butt, and may be considered profane.

Q's previous films include Bishh (2009) - a fascinating story of 3 women with a single-minded purpose to live like men and earn money over one night, and Love In India (2009) - a film that challenges mainstream ideas of morality and sex in India.

Love In India has been released on DVD in North America (USA/Canada) and is available on DVD and Video-On-Demand streaming online here »

According to Ramkrishna Paramhansa Deb, darkness is the Ultimate Mother, or Kali:
My Mother is the principle of consciousness. She is Akhanda Satchidananda; indivisible Reality, Awareness, and Bliss. The night sky between the stars is perfectly black. The waters of the ocean depths are the same; The infinite is always mysteriously dark. This inebriating darkness is my beloved Kali.
