The SPRING, ROYAL ALBERT HALL, 16th March 2014

‘Sujata Banerjee Dance Company students performed at the Royal Albert Hall for the Hertfordshire Schools’ Gala 2014. It was a hugely exciting show demonstrating the breadth and depth of the musical achievements of Hertfordshire’s children and young people.’ SBDC were the only Indian Dance organisation the Gala captured amongst many school; an impressive 114 schools across the two performances & participation from two community choirs.

 “Music continues to be an important part of Hertfordshire life and in the 100th Anniversary year of the beginning of World War 1 the show was dedicated to reflect the commemoration musically and then showcase a musical journey through the subsequent 100 years up to the present day.”

SBDC Performance: The Spring

Pandit Debojyoti Bose

Choreographer: Sujata Banerjee

 

In the mid 1960s, Indian classical music began to appear in popular music, not least in the music of the Beatles and The Rolling Stones. The Spring is a colourful Kathak technical piece set in raga Vasant (Spring). Indian classical music is often described as raga music; raga uses a series of musical notes upon which a melody is constructed. Ragas are associated with different times of the day or seasons. The piece was presented in ‘Tarana’ form (a particular classical singing style) and is set in a 16-beat time cycle. - “The group showed immense dedication and commitment and I’m proud SBDC presented the beauty of Kathak amongst 2500 performers” – Guru Sujata Banerjee

 

“It was my first time experience of performing at a profound venue like The Royal Albert Hall, a memorable occasion at SBDC!” – Mikika, aged 16.
