25 years Indian music at Codarts conservatory Rotterdam
I had the privelage of being the photographer of an extraordinary well organized and musical event in the building where I’m proud to be the facilities manager: WMDC (World Music and Dance Centre) in Rotterdam.
Today was the celebration of 25 years of the Indian department at Codarts. It’s not everybodies privelage to get to know such wonderful musicians, not only by skill and musicianship, but also as people. People like the great Hariprasad Chaurasia, Niti Ranjan Biswas Marianne Svasek and Henri Tournier, all wonderful people and great teachers. Like I said, I’m proud to be part of this.
As you can see on the pictures, the presentations given by students and teachers and the final concert by Hariprasad, Niti and their students was almost out of this world, just mind blowing! The audience were treated by outstanding Indian classical music, followed by swinging Bollywood as a final.
I hope this department will keep on sharing it’s knowledge with new students for at least another 25 years or more…
