SAHAJIYA - Band Profile

Sahajiya is working for the promotion and exploration of Bengali Folk Music into the World Music arena. Bengali folk music has a wide range of songs with varied rhythm, melody and philosophical thoughts. It includes the rustic songs of Bhatiyali, Bhawaiya, Jhumur to the mystic Baul, Fakir, Darbesh, Sai. The essence of folk music in any part of the world lies in its universality irrespective of language, time and space. We are in a process of developing, evolving and creating a music where traditional Bengali folk instruments like Aktara, Dotara, Khamak, Dubki, Khol, Dhol, Madol, Ghungur & other percussions, Sarinda, Bamboo Flutes, and folk instruments from other part of the world like Conga, Bonga, Shaker, Quika (Latin American), Uuddh, Rabab, Mandolin, Derbuka (Middle East), Zumbae (African), Taiko Drum (Japanese), Banjo (South American), Flamenco Guitar (Spanish), Tabla, Marimba (North & South Indian), Drums, Key Board, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar & Vocal Percussion, are played to give a new dimension to the traditional folk music. This should not be confused as Fusion. Here music from different part of the world with different mood and vivacity resonates in their own spontaneous way and will produce a universal sound what exactly World Music means. It gives birth to A Music which is completely unique yet universal with difference, which comes from our soul, reaches to billions of hearts, irrespective of their language.

This musical journey becomes a philosophical journey with a rare blend of music, expression and emotion. It raises our mind to a cosmic sphere with a freedom of expression, mind, soul, existence and in-depth philosophical insight where at the end the paths of all the folk forms of the world and also of Bengal & India ultimately meet with complete harmony and resonate in the universal rhythm of the universe.
