Event description

Description

Featured as another premiere act for the Sydney Sacred Music Festival, "Bhoomi: Woman and Earth" is a beautiful afternoon showcasing sacred music and dance traditions hailing from South India in the courtyard of the historic Old Government House in Parramatta.

Following on from the success of Ātma: Music and Movement (2017) and Bhakti: Art and Devotion (2018) staged for the festival, Arjunan Puveendran and Indu Balachandran produce another instalment of their outdoor recital series weaving ancient texts and traditions into the lens of contemporary society. Bhoomi explores themes that are more vital than ever in the modern world — the feminine and the environment.

This recital will draw on a combination of music, dance, spoken word and ritual practice featuring an ensemble of locally grown musicians, dancers, thinkers, writers and speakers. The setting of old traditions and myths into the contemporary Australian context promises a unique and thought-provoking afternoon under the sun and gum trees in Parramatta Park celebrating the similarities within our multicultural society.

Reviews for 'Bhakti':

“For the last two years, it has been the most uplifting concert I’ve attended. It reminds me how our ancient and beautiful artistic traditions are part of our spiritual storytelling and journey.”

"Cultural brilliance and excellent musicianship...10/10."

"...the idea of a thematic performance made it much more accessible and gave it a sense of context...it is so much more respectful to an audience by not assuming prior knowledge."
