Devotion - Kakoli Sengupta - Calcutta Rhythm (CD, Album)

Agha's thematic concerns often revolve around concepts of individual identity and personal boundaries. These boundaries are either self-imposed or culturally imposed, and can be emotional, intellectual, sexual, metaphysical or personal in origin. Oftentimes these boundaries and identities constrict and burden the individual, inhibiting their spiritual development and growth.

These boundaries can even cloud and distort our perceptions of truth. At times, imposed boundaries isolate and remove us-from others, from ourselves, from truth, from that which provides nourishment. Agha's artistic thesis is that the struggle with and examination of these boundaries and constraints allows us a pathway into spiritual and personal transcendence.

This transcendence allows us to reassert our connections with others and with ourselves, thereby restoring us to the sense of whole we crave for spiritual fulfillment. This journey of revelation and discovery leads us to an understanding of a higher, universal truth. Agha offers an alternative to her barren surroundings of deconstruction, uncertainty, and eradication.

She responds with a realized vision of fulfillment, which is grounded in the commonalties of cyclical events. These cyclical events can be derived from nature or from human experience. Oftentimes their depiction is a representative microcosm of the whole that binds us together.

The cycles of birth, life, death and disintegration are an inescapable reality for each human being. By identifying with and examining our commonalties, we can transcend imposed boundaries. In no work is this better illustrated than in Roots. The elements depicted all sustain life-from the umbilical cord in the womb, to the roots of a tree.

The intertwining of the two represent how we, as human beings, are tied into a greater reality and cycle of rebirth and life. It becomes impossible to separate one from the other. She has exhibited in art museums and galleries throughout the world - in her homeland, Pakistan, as well as in Britain, Japan, Jordan, Switzerland, and the United States. Agha's latest paintings draw inspiration from Asian and Islamic architecture and from traditional Muslim crafts such as woodcarving, metalworking, and textile production.

Until that point, she had always been billed as Mumtaz but after this film she was credited as Madhubala. She was only fourteen years old, but Madhubala had finally arrived on the Indian screen in a lead role.

Vassan's film Bahut Din Huwe. She became very ill and vomited blood on the set. Vassan and his wife were very hospitable and cared for her until she was well again.

As a result, Madhubala's family was extremely protective.

Qawwali had traditionally been passed down through the generations of a family, with Nusrat's family having enjoyed an unbroken tradition of performing Qawwali for approximatley years.

Nusrat's father was initially reluctant to allow him to enter the family business, instead hoping his son would become a doctor or an engineer, having felt Qawwals had a low social status.

However, Nusrat's enthusiasm for Qawwali eventually persuaded his father to train him in the art. Nusrat began by learning to play tabla alongside his father before progressing to learn Raag Vidya and Bolbandish. He then went on to learn to sing within the classical framework of khayal in the Qawwal Bachchon Gharana and was taught dhrupad from the Dagar family.

Khan's training with his father was cut short when his father died inleaving Nusrat's paternal uncles, Ustad Mubarak Ali Khan and Ustad Salamat Ali Khan, to complete his training. His first performance was at a traditional graveside ceremony for his father, known as chehlum, which took place forty days after his father's death.

Nusrat's first public performance as the leader of the Qawwali party was at a studio recording broadcast as part of an annual music festival organised by Radio Pakistan, known as Jashn-e-Baharan.

Nusrat went on to distinguish himself from other Qawwals and became renowned on the Indian subcontinent and in the Islamic world.

Nusrat reached out to Western audiences through his collaborations with Canadian musician, Michael Brook and his work with Pearl Jam lead singer Eddie Vedder in on the soundtrack to Dead Man Walking. He went on to gain popularity in the West through his contributions to the soundtracks of The Last Temptation of Christ and Natural Born Killerstogether with his friendship with Peter Gabriel. Nusrat was unhappy with the use of his vocals on the Natural Born Killers soundtrack, stating that the nature of the film was contrary to the beliefs and the ideals conveyed in his work.

Peter Gabriel's Real World label later released five albums of Nusrat's traditional Qawwali, together with some of his experimental work which included the albums Mustt Mustt and Star Rise. Nusrat provided vocals for The Prayer Cycle, which was put together by Jonathan Elias, but died before the vocals could be completed.

His first visit to Japan took place inat the invitation of the Japan Foundation. His participation in seminars and his performances at the 5th Asian Traditional Performing Art Festival and subsequent concerts in Japan have earned him a steadily increasing number of fans in this country. Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan's accomplishments have contributed both to the succession and advancement of the qawwali tradition, and to the popularization of South Asia's outstanding traditional music culture around the world.

Moreover, he has brought innovation into the sphere of the qawwali by taking advantage of his artistic gifts and flexibility to transcend the rules imposed by tradition. These achievements, taken together, have had an immeasurable impact on cultural exchange between the East and the West; led to the enhancement of both cultures, and thus make Ustad Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan particularly worthy of receiving the Arts and Culture Prize of the Fukuoka Asian Cultural Prizes. Born in in Babaria in Madhya Pradesh, Raza lived his first impressionable 13 years in the forest ranges of Narsimhapur and Mandal districts where his father was posted as a forest officer.

In his early childhood, therefore, his environment was formed of the Narmada river surrounded by the Satpura and Vindhyachal mountain ranges, dense forests, birds, animals, tribal life, symbols and mythology. With these beautiful natural surroundings forming the basis of his visual archive of memories, Raza developed his intuitive proclivity.

Raza studied painting in the Nagpur School of Art and the J. He owes his elementary values of art to Bapurao Athawale, his teacher at Nagpur. In Bombay he realized the seriousness of art expression, with the artistic experimentations introduced to him by Walter Langhammer of Vienna Academy on the one hand, and the richness of Indian philosophy and culture unvieled to him by Shri Ahiwasi of Benares.

When still a young painter, Raza saw an atmosphere of artistic renaissance building up in Bengal. Young Raza searched for an expression between the Indian working concepts of these artists and the Victorian realistic norms being taught in most art schools of India at that time. This yearning was shared by some other young artists in Bombay, in their early twenties and from different parts of the country. They were confident and determined to take their destinies in their own hands.

He moved to France on a French government scholarship, for studying painting at the Ecole Nationale Superior de Beaux-Arts, in Paris from to Alone and unbiased by any guide he exposed himself to the works of the European Impressionist masters and drew his inspirations.

It was in his home region only that he realized his true style. It was in this bindu that Raza discovered his true destiny. For years after its rediscovery, he researched its primordial significance in the visual arts of India.

From painting street and city life of India and France, he made a switch to the intuitive knowledge and spirituality of his new style. For him the bindu became the magic image from which all his work has emerged.

The point, the bindu, symbolizes for him the seed, the precursor to all life, or the epicentre of rythmic reverbrations. To express this concept, Raza has integrated a basic sense of geometry into his canvas after years of hard work. He compares the intuitive knowledge of his work with the abstraction achieved by a musician while performing when rhyme and verse give way to pure perception of the subject. Since then he has received the Kalidas Samman from the government of Madhya Pradesh and a retrospective of his paintings has been presented at the Bharat Bhavan in Bhopal.

Raza now lives and works in Paris and Gorbio, in Southern France. Exhibitions by him:. Awarded the Prix de la Critique in Paris inRaza has held numerous exhibitions both in India and abroad.
