A musical passage unveiling the fire within
by Temple of Fine Arts
INDIA / SINGAPORE
Fire (agni) is a positive energy of the cosmos long embraced by cultures around the world since time immemorial. Worshipped as Surya Bhagavan (a sun god) by Hindu farming nomads in ancient times, it is also known as God of the Flames to the wandering gypsies and the illuminating flame of love in Sufi philosophy.
Following the success of productions such as Water, Damaru and Taal Express, the Temple of Fine Arts’ latest presentation Anthar-Agni is a music and dance tribute to the sacred fire, celebrating its deep spiritual significance as well as influence on Asian and Spanish cultures. Conceptualised by 2011 Young Artist Award recipient Nawaz Mirajkar, the concert blends percussive instrumentation, vocals, dance and a mesmerising visual backdrop of silhouettes against a glowing sun. Also featured this evening are Chinese musicians, Spanish dancers and guest musicians from India whose collaborative sparks add a new dimension to an Indian classical music performance.
