PREVIEW FOR PATERGAAN PERFORMANCE BY PATACHITRA ARTIST RANJIT CHITRAKAR
Sri Ranjit Chitrakar, the famous Patachitra from West Bengal, is a seasoned performer who holds his audience with nuanced variations in his voice.
The intricacy and beauty of the scrolls capture our imagination and we watch like little children, spellbound, as stories of snakes, tigers, gods and demons unfold. He sings in Bengali, the sur is similar to that of Baul music. There was timeless quality to his song, it makes you stop and listen.
