Noted Hindustani composer Rita Sahai will present the world premiere of yet another ambitious, Hindustani choral concert, billed as “Jalaranjani: The Moods of Water,” at Ohlone College’s Smith Center Theatre in Fremont, Calif., Nov. 21 at 7 p.m.
Sahai and her Vasundhara Choir, which consists of 45 uplifting singers and 10 instrumentalists of multiple ages and cultures, will bring to life a rich musical journey that is inspired by the moods of water.
In this and two previous concerts – “Navagraha Utsav” in October 2012 and the 2008 choir concert “Vasundhara: Ode to Mother Earth” – Sahai illustrates that not only is she a soulful performer, brilliant and prolific composer, and a venerated music teacher, she is also a staunch environmentalist.
“Jalaranjani” is about attuning to the different moods of water and the journey of life. Through her music, Sahai seeks to remind us of our unity. Her music evokes a feeling of our oneness, uniting us with life, nature and one another. Listeners will be called to embark upon a journey of the soul, a journey that will take them deep within, through and beyond the experiences of our lives.
