SUKHAN - A Mehfil of Urdu Literature & Sufi music. Compiled & directed by Om Bhutkar In association with Wide Wings Media. Sukhan is a 3 hours long performance (mehfil) with a short interval, enriched by the plethora of compositions of Urdu literature, Hindustani Classical music, and Sufi music. A performance enriched by gems like Urdu storytelling (Daastaan-goi), recitation of Ghazals and Nazms, recitation of Urdu prose, musical rendition of Ghazals and Qawwalis. The unique aspect of the show is that the content chosen for the performance varies from time to time. It is chosen from a vast treasure of Urdu literature and Shayari by Hafiz Jalandhari, Saahir Ludhiyanavi, Joan Eliya, Faiz Ahmed Faiz, Mirza Ghalib, Ameer Khusrow, Meer Taqi Meer, Mujtaba Hussain, Dagh Dehlavi, Muhammad Iqbal, Nida Fazli and many more. The performance seems to be a novelty every time, as new compositions are added to it. Sukhan also belongs to a more informal genre of performance as there are constant interaction and a dialogue between the audience and artists. The audience is encouraged to participate in the presentation in the form of response to the artist’s questions or repetition of the lines of poems or singing along with the artists.
