BH CORRESPONDENT, Kolkata: Amid lockdown, tabla maestro Bickram Ghosh has come up with a series, Out of the Box, which has short percussion performances on Facebook. The series is being shot by his wife, Jaya Seal Ghosh, who is an acclaimed dancer herself.
In these video, one gets to watch two Bickram Ghoshs. Now, we know you are getting confused, but that is the entire idea? While Bickramuddin plays the traditional tabla, Bickram Sundar plays the other instrument. Together, they create virtual jugalbandi. The series has been attracting major eyeballs.
“I tend to always look at the light, however thin a shimmer it might be. The number of COVID-19 are on the rise, but people are also recovering as we speak. I’m in quarantine and I hope you are . While so, I have decided to take this time doing stuff that in some way or the other breaks the norm; is , simply put, out of the box! Thus, here’s a new series of videos where I communicate out-of-the box as a tabla player, as a composer or as a person. Here I’m going off the beaten track . I think you will enjoy these shorts,” says Bickram, who recently paid virtual tribute to Pandit Ravi Shankar on his birth centenary through a video where along with Anoushka Shankar other students of the sitar maestro also played Sandhya Raga.
