Moushumi Bhowmik: Songs Old and New from Bengal

October 17, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Free

As part of the Faculty of Music’s Sounds of South Asia series, Moushumi Bhowmik, singer, writer, and music researcher from Kolkata (Calcutta) will sing and talk about her art of listening and making music. She will be joined by her long-time colleague, British composer and multi-instrumentalist Oliver Weeks. Moushumi sings in Bengali but presents her work in English, with translations of her songs.

This performance will draw on Moushumi Bhowmik’s long-standing research project, The Travelling Archive, which shares with readers and listeners selections from a growing collection of folk music of Bengal, recorded in the field by herself and Sukanta Majumdar from 2003.
