Exploring New Horizons of Culture

PRABHÁT SAḾGIITA
PRABHÁT SAḾGIITA — a collection of 5018 verses constitutes a distinct school of music named after its illustrious composer Shrii Prabhát Raiṋjan Sarkár, the PRECEPTOR of ÁNANDA MÁRGA PRACÁRAKA SAḾGHA.
PRABHÁT SAḾGIITA acquires its unique distinction in the world of poetry and music because of its singular qualities like Bhava(Profound import), Bhasa(Graceful Language), Chhanda (Rhythmic Expression) and Sur(Sweet Melody).
The apparent feature of PRABHÁT SAḾGIITA is it’s not of vibrant optimism which manifests itself through every word of the compositions. Shrii P.R.Sarkar holds that Art is for Service and Blessedness and hence one finds every song from this creation replete with an effulgence of hope and joy. This is a marked departure from the current trend of composition.
As stated above, the merits of a musical composition can be judged by its Bhava, Bhasa, Chhanda and Sur.
In the realm of Bhava, PRABHÁT SAḾGIITA uplifts one to the subtler regions of profound and mystical communion with the Divine. Interwoven through all the various compositions is the conscious desire of the singer to have a closer communion with his Lord.
The language throughout is direct and sweet. Hitherto it was felt that simple and colloquial words were unsuitable for the expression of lofty or abstract ideas in the verse and song.
But PRABHÁT SAḾGIITA makes bold departure from this tradition of the tribal’s of the Rarh belt of Bengal.
This makes it immediately acceptable to the simple but unlettered minds and hearts — hence its universal appeal.
With regards to rhythm, the poet has remarked that the ensuing generation is the generation of rhythm and rhythmic expression. PRABHÁT SAḾGIITA in all its aspects, classical, semi-classical and folk, is replete with highly rhythmic compositions. It is a happy blend of oriental thought and melody with occidental rhythm.
In PRABHÁT SAḾGIITA one finds a cultural synthesis of melodies. Notable amongst them are the blending of European, Middle Eastern and African Melodies and Styles.
All of us have our varying moods, sentiments and propensities and PRABHÁT SAḾGIITA gives scope for their manifold expressions. Apart from the purely devotional and mystical songs and the purely original Kiirtanas, there are songs to celebrate social occasions and festivals as well as those that herald the seasons. All with the underlying note that seeks to create a link between the finite and the infinite. It is also opportune to note here that the composer of PRABHÁT SAḾGIITA has for the first time introduced “Ghazal” and “Tappa” in Bengali devotional music.
It is significant to note that, the first song of PRABHÁT SAḾGIITA was composed on the 14th September 1982, at Deoghar, Bihar, India and on the day before the departure of our Beloved Shrii Prabhát Raiṋjan Sarkár, the total number of verses composed were 5018 – an astoundingly creative feat – no doubt.
