Bangalore International Centre had arranged an interesting event “Morching Tarang” by Vidwan L. Bhimachar, Vidwan B. Druvaraj, Vidwan B. Rajashekar, and Vidushi Bhagyalakshmi M Krishna, on Monday, 24th October, 2011 at 6:30 pm.
The event began with a short introduction about the construction and handling of the instrument Morching. Next, the artists demonstrated similar instruments in other countries like Germany, France, Russia, Japan etc.
The performance began with Morching Tarang in 6 notes Sa-Ri-Ga-Pa-Da-Sa which resembled Mohana Raga, set in Adi Tala. The three artists on Morching handled two notes in ascending and descending order to create Raga Bhava, and then they played individually with rhythmic garland of classical music.
The next part was a dialogue between Morching and Mridangam where the artists tried to present the different Nadai [5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 to a beat], with rhythmic interwoven patterns. Here also they attempted to highlight the beauty of the instrument with different sounds that could be produced.
It was a very pleasant and melodious evening, which was thoroughly enjoyed by the lovers of classical music.
