Payton MacDonald et Ina Filip nous présentent un récital de Dhrupad - tradition musicale Hidustani du Nord de l'Inde, vieille de plus de 700 ans. Le Dhrupad est une musique majestueuse et méditative qui explore la profondeur des ragas, la pureté du ton vocal et la microtonalité. Shawn Mativetsky les accompagne au tabla.

Payton MacDonald et Ina Filip sont disciples des maîtres Gundechas (considérés comme les plus grands chanteurs de cette tradition en Inde).  Payton et Ina explorent le rare Jugalbandi (duo) homme/femme, dans la tradition Dagarbani.

Ina Filip est un talent émergent du Dhrupad, la seule artiste au Québec et au Canada à donner des concerts au niveau internationale.  Elle a reçu plusieurs bourses des Conseils des Arts du Québec et du Canada dans son cheminement, et habite partiellement en Inde depuis 2013 pour approfondir son apprentissage. Payton MacDonnald et Shawn Mativetsky sont tous deux professeurs universitaires de musique, respectivement à l'université William Paterson (NJ' EUA) et McGill (QC). Ils se produisent régulièrement tant au niveau nationale qu'internationale, et ont eux aussi passé de longues périodes en Inde auprès de leurs maîtres.



DHRUPAD

A MEDITATIVE JOURNEY

by Ina Filip & Benoit Rolland

ENGLISH

Join us in this one of a kind concert, where Ina Filip will take the audience on a journey into the ancestral depths of India, in the Dhrupad (classical Indian) singing tradition. Considered a form of Yoga of Sound, Dhrupad induces both the singer and the listener into a vibratory meditative experience. The practice of ancestral vocal techniques that evolve from the deep slow movements to the ecstatic speeds will be interweaved with electroacoustic arrangements by Benoit Rolland.

Musicians and instrumentation:
Ina Filip - voice, tampoura.
Benoit Rolland - electroacoustic drone, piano.

Testimonials from previous audiences:

“This was so different from everything I have ever heard. It was as if the wind was singing… as if the earth was singing… right into my soul”.

“I have no words to describe the experience I had while listening to this concert. The best I could say is that this is healing music. But even to say ‘healing’ is not enough. It went directly into my soul, into places I didnt even know existed. I am blown away”.

BIO

Originally from Brazil, Ina Filip lives partially in India since 2013, where she deepens her practice of Dhrupad singing (the most ancient form of classical singing in India). Guided by the renowned Gundecha Brothers - world's foremost exponents of this tradition - Ina Filip is immersed in this path, where music becomes a path of awakening of consciousness, where singing becomes a prayer and an offering. When not in India, Ina Filip lives in Quebec, CA, where she shares this tradition via concerts, workshops, articles, etc at both national and international levels.

NOTE FOR PROMOTERS: if the performance takes place outside Canada, please take out the tampoura from the list of instruments played by Ina Filip.
