About the Artists
A seasoned musician, Alexandre Jurain discovered Hindustani classical music more than 20 years ago as a ICCR scholarship awardee. Today, he is one of the rare exponents of Esraj solo in the Dhrupad form, the most rigorous school of Indian classical music. With singer Sukanta Bose, whose voice has a unique texture, they compose the duet Azarak revisiting the music of the land and exploring new ideas.
The language of Azarak is an imaginary language, which dreams of itself as the voice of nature. This repertoire is at the confluence of western and Indian classical music with Celtic or tribal reminiscences, and opens up to wandering in a primeval world, honouring nature as the only goddess.
