Mayur Students collaborate with IndianRaga to present “Flute in the Thunder”

Over the summer, Mayur students participated in the RagaLabs fellowship under IndianRaga. This piece is set to “Bojre Tomar Bansi” (or Flute in the Thunder), written by Rabindranath Tagore and rendered here by Swagatalakshmi Dasgupta; the piece was choreographed for this workshop by Mayur’s Artistic Director Sukanya Mukherji.

Students worked hard to get this piece together in pandemic conditions, wearing masks and rehearsing outdoors in the summer heat. We’re very grateful to their families for initiating and supporting this project, following the pandemic safety protocols. Mayur is very proud to present the result of these efforts, and we thank IndianRaga for the opportunity!

Please enjoy, and look out for more pieces in this series – especially an item that was choreographed by the students themselves.
