What the road has been teaching me
Thursday, April 21, 2022
04:00 pm–06:00 pm
Main Building G1 and online (Zoom/YT)
As a singer and writer who has worked in the field for decades, travelling, recording and archiving songs and stories from the road, Moushumi Bhowmik will talk about how she slowly began to realise the importance of voices besides her own, and how she also realised that listening is not a given, but something we arrive at, through practice and empathy. It is the lessons in listening that she has been taking from the road that she will talk about in this colloquium.
Moushumi Bhowmik, singer, writer, and music researcher from Kolkata. With Sukanta Majumdar, Ms. Bhowmik founded the online Travelling Archive, which presents a collection of folk music of Bengal, recorded in Assam, West Bengal, Bangladesh, and England. Her music composition for the Bengali movie Matir Moina (The Clay Bird) won the Critics’ Prize at Cannes in 2002 and Best Music at Kara Film Festival, Karachi, in 2003.
