April 24th, 2010: Subhra Guha

@abbesses

I have to wonder whether I’ll finally get Indian music at all. I’m still trying, but this time was yet another one when I just couldn’t.

Subhra Guha sang most of the set, with short bit from the harmonium player — I guess she’s a pupil of hers. I guess this performance was so centered on the voice that the melodic element dominated the rhythmic one, because I think I could follow the latter. Which may be why I didn’t like it much, as I probably focused too much on what I could follow when it wasn’t the point at all.

Of course, she’s a talented singer, but I think her style demanded a much better grasp of what was going on than I had. It’s getting pretty frustrating, but I guess more exposure is my only shot at maybe getting in someday. Quite possibly to realize I don’t really like it — judging from my musical affinities — but right now I don’t even understand enough to say for sure.
