Satyajit Ray's "The Music Room" with guest speaker Hidayat Khan
With The Music Room (Jalsaghar), Satyajit Ray brilliantly evoked the crumbling opulence of the world of a fallen aristocrat (beloved actor Chhabi Biswas) clinging to a fading way of life. His greatest joy is the music room in which he hosted lavish concerts —now a shadow of its former vivid self. An incandescent depiction of the clash between tradition and modernity, The Music Room is a defining work by the great Bengali filmmaker.
The music of The Music Room is exquisite – the work of composer and conductor, Ustad Vilayat Khan, globally acclaimed as the greatest of all sitarists. His son, Hidayat Khan, also a celebrated sitarist, will talk about his father's collaboration with Ray. Avi Basu, friend of the Ray family, will introduce the film and Hidayat.
