Mr. Nawaz Mirajkar & Mr. Anil Srinivasan talk to LetsThinkAloud.com on their show for Kalaa Utsavam 2015 @ Esplanade; starting Nov 20th 2015.

Fire is the positive energy of the cosmos long embraced by cultures around the world since time immemorial. Worshipped as a sun god (Surya) by Hindu farming nomads in ancient times, it is also known as God of the Flames to the wandering gypsies and the illuminating flame of love in Sufi philosophy.

Following the success of productions such as Water, Damaru and Taal Express, the Temple of Fine Arts’ latest presentation, Anthar Agni, is a music and dance tribute to the sacred fire (agni), celebrating its deep spiritual significance as well as influence on Asian and Spanish cultures. Led by 2011 Young Artist Award recipient Nawaz Mirajkar, the concert blends percussive instrumentation, vocals and a mesmerising backdrop of silhouettes against a glowing sun. Also featured this evening are Chinese musicians, Spanish dancers, guest musicians from India and a Sufi singer, whose collaborative sparks add a new dimension to a classical Indian music performance.
