加德滿都音樂會Concert of Anupama Feat. Kutumba

一個佛教團體Byoma Kusuma Buddha Dharma Sangha 為他們的上師 Aarya Mahayogi Sridhar Rana Rinpoche (已故的偉大上師究給企千仁波切的弟子)舉行61歲生日兼建廟的募款音樂會,智慧金剛仁波切和嘎夏種仁波切及很多堪布都去了,我們IBA一幫同學也跑去。

比較有趣的是,這個仁波切自己沒去,聽說他長期閉關(他的弟子們同時也慶祝他的第14年閉關生活),這個加德滿都最大的音樂廳倒是千人擠的滿滿的。

主要表演的是一位印度女子,她的歌都是自己寫的,而且都是在禪定時自然浮現的詞曲,各種印度尼泊爾語言與梵文,有些語言還是她自己並不會講的。

果然不錯,而且音樂會的節目出乎意料的豐富。

除了Anupama的演唱外,還放了一個MTV,是Anuama和尼泊爾當紅男歌手合唱的一首“我的國家”,片子裏主要是尼泊爾各種族孩童的天真笑顔,充滿希望,是這個彿教團體送給尼泊爾這個國家的禮物,頗感人的。

還有當地中學學生跳的金剛舞,五位“金剛瑜珈母”!看的我驚訝不已,無上瑜珈部的本尊就這樣讓五個女孩子把半憤怒尊跳的活靈活現的――嚴格的上師連沒灌過頂的人都不給看本尊相貌圖片的。加德滿都真不愧是金剛瑜珈母的聖地。

下半場加進一個尼泊爾最好的民俗音樂團體Kutumba演奏,真的是世界級水準!太出乎意料了。結束後,老外同學們馬上衝去買CD,還笑說要幫他們成立美國與澳洲的歌迷俱樂部!

Yesterday a local Buddhist community (Byoma Kusuma Buddha Dharma Sangha) held a concert in dedication to the 61st birthday of their guru Arya Mahayogi Sridhar Rana Rinpoche  (a disciple of the late Chogye Trichen Rinpoche) and the commencement of 14th year of his retreat. H. E. Gyana Vajra Rinpoche got invited and Gar Shab Rinpoche and many khenpos also went.

I went with a bunch of IBA schoolmates. It sounded interesting because the singer Anupama wrote all her songs spontaneously from her mediation in various Indian and Nepalese languages, including languages she doesn’t know and Sanskrit.

Her singing is indeed good and to everyone’s surprise, the concert offered more than just her singing.

They released a music video of Anupama singing “My Country” with the top Nepalese male singer as a gift from this community to their country. The video featured innocent Nepalese children from various races smiling and playing, which is quite touching.

Then there were some girls from a local secondary school offered a dance (spiritual Buddhist dance apparently amazingly well preserved in Nepalese culture) – Vajrayogini dance. This is pretty amazing. Thinking of deity of secret tantric practice can be performed so prevalently among ordinary people here.

In the 2nd half of the concert, the best folk instrumental ensemble in Nepal, Kutumba, presented their performance, which was a real highlight of the evening. They were extremely good, so good that we went straight to Tamel to buy their CDs after the concert and joked about setting fan clubs for them in US and Australia.
