DD Bharti pays tribute to Indian music and big names in the field

NEW DELHI: The cultural channel of Doordarshan, DD Bharati, is doing a series of shows that are aimed at understanding the nuances of Indian music and paying tributes to the big names in this field.

A specially selected series entitled, "Remembering Legends- Vibhutiyon ko pranaam" will be aired this weekend. The show will offer some nifty archival performances of the Hindustani Classical Music Aces likely the legendary Dagar Brothers, Rampur Seheswan Gharana and Pt. Bhimsen Joshi. All the episodes have exclusively been curated and re-presented by Yatindra Mishra and Smt. Kumud Diwan. The telecast will be on 17 October and 18 October 2014, 9 pm onwards and repeat telecast at 5am and 1pm.

On 20 October 2014, DD Bharati, in association with the External Affairs Ministry, will telecast the programme, “Kolkata Blues” at 10:30 pm, with repeat telecasts at 6.30 and 2.30pm. This show will present a glimpse of the wide range of musical traditions that Kolkata possesses. Culturally, Kolkata has been at the epicenter of the Bengal renaissance movement and its music reflects the revoluntary sprit of Bengal and their attitude towards reform and action for social change. It shows how music runs and energises the lives of its people.

The channel will also pay homage to legendary singer Manna Dey on his death anniversary by telecasting some programmes from the rich archives of Doordarshan in “Tu Pyaar Ka Sagar Hai” on 24 October and 25 October at 10.30 pm, repeat telecasts at 6:30 and 2:30 pm. This special programme is a tribute to Dey, born as Probodh Chandra Dey in an orthodox Bengali family on 1 May 1919. Blessed with a distinctly melodious voice, Manna Dey lent his immortal print on many renditions. His popularity was not restricted to the geographical boundaries of India and his voice was worshiped in every nook and corner where an Indian heart stayed.

Earlier this week, DD Bharati commenced the telecast of “Tridiwasiye Dhrupad Dham Samorah” on 13 October at 9 pm with repeat telecast at 5am and 1pm. Dhrupad is an ancient form of classical music that comes from the Samveda. It has a long rooted history derived from ancient times. The foremost traditions developed are mainly Dagar tardition, Darbhanga tradition, Bettiah tradition, Talwandi Tradition and Bishnupur tradition. The show consists of legendary dhrupad musicians of past and present and will be presented and complied by Prashant Kumar Mallick.
