Rooh ji Rehaan the Musical Installation
Rooh Ji Rehaan, literally a confluence of souls is a space to get immersed in the Poetry & Music of the Herders of Kutch. Artwork, songs, sounds, ideas and poetry come together in this exhibit to create a contemplative immersion in the poetic, philosophic and musical universe of the pastoral communities of Kutch. All elements – mountain, desert, sky, monsoon, wind or river – begin to reverberate with hidden meanings. The poetry of Shah Latif, Mekan Dada, Kabir, Mirabai and other local poets comes alive through songs curated and recorded from the oral traditions of Kutch by Shabnam Virmani and Vipul Rikhi, with art by Roy Varghese.
