#1 Baha’uddin Dagar Rudra Veena: up close with Rahman

Post by Sachi_R »

This is an extraordinary audio visual meditation with Ustad Dagar. He is articulate, intense and so much "with it".
In this episode, you get to see the instrument, the musician, understand a bit of his values and tradition, and also understand a bit of A R Rahman and his music. So a bonanza.


You need to subscribe to Amazon Prime to watch it.

There is also a short trailer on Youtube:

Important: the YouTube clip has NO Rudra veena sounds. It has Rahman's music.

Harmony with A R Rahman 2. Looking at the Swar : Featuring Ustad Mohi Baha’uddin Dagar
In the bustling suburb of Navi Mumbai, Maharashtra, A R Rahman encounters the ancient, classical musical instrument, Rudra Veena. The haunting tones of the Rudra Veena form the background for this episode, as we learn what it takes to preserve a centuries old heritage. The episode features Ustad Mohi Baha’uddin Dagar, who practices this instrument in the Dhrupad tradition.
After some of us watch it, I will share my comments 😀

Uhho.
This video and many good programmes on Amazon Prime Video in India are I think worth your creating a new account on Amazon Prime out of India.

I read somewhere Amazon lets you watch Prime videos for free with ads.

I am somewhat disappointed that nobody has said they saw this video.
For those who cherish the pure resonant sounds of an Indian stringed instrument, played by someone steeped in tradition, savouring and visualizing every nuance and note, creating a sacred space of sound... for them this is a MUST WATCH.

I'm getting a "This title isn't available in your location" when I try to access via my US account from Chennai. Tried to fool it by logging into my company's US VPN... no avail :(. I guess I'll have to wait until I'm back stateside.
