CFAA is excited to announce our support of
the 2nd annual Naada's "Daasa Namana" event for the year 2012
On Sunday Feb 19th, 2012
from 2 pm to 6pm
At Broomfield Auditorium,
In the spirit of remembering and celebrating the Haridasa's of 15th Century who gave us devotional Dasa Sahitya called Dasarapadas, we invite you to attend an afternoon filled with classical style compositions rendered by various artists in the area.
For those interested in participating,
please fill out the participation form
or email Naada Colorado (Naada.Colorado@gmail.com) .
The following are the requirements set forth.
- Compostion to be a Haridasa sahitya. A few examples of great composers are Sri Purandara Dasaru, Sri Kanaka Dasaru, Sri Gopala Dasaru , Sri Vyasa Rayaru.
- Rendering to be in classical style (Carnatic or Hindustani)
- Any accompaniments to be decided and co-ordinated by participants/teachers
- Duration to be under 5 minutes per participant
- Competency level for students to be at or above Varna stage.
Since pronunciation is key to meaning and emotion of the compositions, it is best to consult those who know the language. We are open to helping or connecting you with the lyrics.
Please note that we would like to encourage as many participants as possible and with the given time constraints there may be a possibility that we would request group performances based on RSVP's. To help us with co-ordination we humbly request the PARTICIPATION-RSVP deadline of January 7th, 2012 to be taken very seriously.
We do need volunteers in helping with organizing, planning and executing this event and would appreciate it if you would let us know in your RSVP's if you are interested in helping out in any way. Please forward email to anyone else you know who may be interested in attending or participating. The event flyer is attached.
We look forward to the program and hope to hear back from you at your earliest convenience.
