Subject

Description

Free Jazz III. Sound. Walks.

The sound of the harmonium is tightly woven into the history and culture of Bangladesh, but for artist Reetu Sattar, it is not just an instrument. In her performance piece Harano Sur (Lost Tune), she uses it as a way to explore the violence and social upheaval which has affected her home country in recent years.

A film documentation of a performance involving a physical structure, 33 musicians and 29 harmoniums with 4 shehnais, Harano Sur (Lost Tune) connects observations of losses to completely ambiguous mental states, consciously manifesting a collective feeling of powerlessness amidst deteriorating socio-political conditions that are slowly decaying.
