'The Malhaar Concerto' performed at the Opening Event of the Water Policy Dialog in conjunction with the Singapore International Water Week

 
 
‘The Malhaar Concerto' for sitar, tabla and Orchestra was performed by the NUSSO (National University of Singapore - Symphony Orchestra) as the opening event of the Water Policy Dialog held in conjunction with the Singapore International Water Week, on Thursday June 25 at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, National University of Singapore.

The Malhaar Concerto is based on the 'Rain' movement of the 'The Sound of Seasons' written by Kanniks Kannikeswaran in 2007. The orchestral performance was conducted by Mona Lim and was preceded and followed by a narrative spoken by Kannikeswaran. This opening was conceived and designed with the idea of creating the setting for a dialog on water by delegates spanning the public, private sectors and academia of various countries.

Inspired by the raaga mian malhaar, this cocerto weaves together several themes based on the raga in a complex polyphonic framework in four movements representing the gathering of clouds, the dance of peacocks, rain and floods and the bounty of water.
