Inspiration. The connection of music to wellness and mental health.
We will explore together music, movement, dance and words connecting in Irish & Indian culture, including some beautiful music and dance from India and Ireland. Members of the audience will be welcomed to be mindfully present and will be included in the performance.
The evening will be based on the idea of nine emotions from Indian Sanskrit called Nava Rasa. These are love (shringaara), laughter (haasya), kind-heartedness or compassion (karuna), anger (roudra), courage (veera), fear (bhayaanaka), disgust (bheebhatsya), wonder or surprise (adbhutha) and peace or tranquility (shaantha).
And also the three Strains in Irish music.
1. Goltraí “dirges or laments”, from gol- (“weeping, crying”) + -traí
The sorrow strain caused people to weep
2. Geantraí “joy music”, from gean- (“smile, affection”) + -traí
The joy strain incited merriment
3. Suantraí “lullaby”, from suan- (“sleep, slumber”) + -traí
The sleep strain lulled people to slumber
