The carnatic faculty of SIFAS pays tribute to three distinguished vaggeyakaras (singer-composers), Arunagirinathar, Syama Sastri and Harikesanellur Muthiah Bhagavatar, who represent the pre-trinity, trinity and post-trinity eras of the South Indian medieval classical music, respectively.Arunagirinathar, a 15th century pre-trinity Tamil poet, contributed largely to chanda talas, a unique system of South Indian Tamil music, by creating poems called tiruppugazh which praises Lord Murugan.The eldest among the trinity of carnatic music was Syama Sastri, whose contribution to the intricate laya (rhythm) system and rakthi raga compositions stands as a testimony to his remarkable stature as a prominent composer.In the post-trinity period, one could consider 20th century composer Muthiah Bhagavatar as a colossal contributor to carnatic. He had to his credit, the innovation of 20 new ragas and a hundreds of compositions.Carnatic Composers is a series of concerts that explore the rich diversity of carnatic music through the works of composers who have defined the genre from the 15th century to the present.

A Thousand Mothers (PG)Set at an ancient nunnery above the majestic Irrawaddy River, A Thousand Mothers is an unprecedented look into the lives of Buddhist nuns in Sagaing, Myanmar, an ancient religious region with one of the largest concentrations of monasticism in the world. While the choices available to girls and women in Myanmar are quite limited, the film poetically unfolds to reveal unexpected opportunity and beauty as young orphans find a refuge, an education, and a healthy environment with older nuns who have dedicated their lives to service with the wit and wisdom required to live outside the pull of their rapidly modernising culture.Directed by Kim Shelton尊玛尊玛: 我和她们在喜马拉雅山的夏天 Tsunma Tsunma: My Summer With The Female Monastics Of The Himalaya (PG)为拉达克的第一位安尼藏医。亦有住在山洞十年的老安尼多玛慈仁，讲述她们学习佛法的生活和故事。本片也纪录了小安尼秋田多玛十八岁时即成为小主持的欢乐与眼泪。更有德烈汪莫从西藏家乡一路磕长头花了一年多的时间费尽千辛万苦到印度学习佛法，经过十七年的苦读成为西藏第一批女格西（佛学博士）的故事。Tsunma, an honorific term connoting “noble, delicate, and pure”, refers to the Tibetan Buddhist Nuns of the Himalayan Region who have been largely dismissed or forgotten by the traditions they follow and the societies they’ve served. Taiwanese photographer Lin Li-Fang undertook a solo journey up 4,270 meters into the Himalayan Plateau and lived for an entire summer with some of these nuns and recorded life in the unforgiving environment dubbed “The Roof of the World”. There, Li-Fang captured a life devoted to hope and faith and a people possessing a unique kind of tolerance, humility, and perseverance.Directed by Lin Li-fang 林丽芳*There will be a post-screening discussion with the film director

At the heart of this community, a group of cloistered meditators sit in silence for 8 hours every day.

The Piano Guys - Live in Singapore
LAMC Productions is excited to announce that global YouTube sensation, THE PIANO GUYS, will be returning to Singapore on Tuesday, September 25, 2018 at The Star Theatre, The Star Performing Arts Centre. They will be performing their trademark classical renditions of todays pop hits. What do you get when you mix up a marketing genius that does video, a studio engineer that writes music, a pianist that had a successful solo career, and a cellist that does pretty much everything? The Piano Guys: a miraculous meeting of guys with the same intrinsic purpose to make a positive impact in the lives of people all over the world through music videos. The Piano Guys Steven Sharp Nelson, Jon Schmidt, Al Van der Beek and Paul Anderson became an online sensation by way of their immensely successful series of strikingly original self-made music videos, which have far surpassed 1 billion views and garnered 6 million subscribers on YouTube. Theyve made over 50 music videos since 2011, including their breakout hit, an innovative multi-handed version of One Directions What Makes You Beautiful and a gorgeous reinvention of the hit song Let It Go from Disneys Frozen. Christmas Together is the Utah-based classical-pop groups seventh major label album on Portrait/Sony Music Masterworks, following: Wonders, The Piano Guys, The Piano Guys 2, A Family Christmas, The Piano Guys Live! and Uncharted. The group originated as a social media strategy for Anderson's piano store, The Piano Guys, in St. George, Utah. Anderson was acquainted with Schmidt, a locally notable pianist who often came in to practice on the pianos when he was in town. In 2009, Anderson saw a music video that Schmidt had uploaded to YouTube, "Love Story Meets Viva la Vida" a musical blend of the Taylor Swift country pop version and Coldplay's Baroque pop song "Viva la Vida", which Schmidt performed with Nelson on cello. That video logged more than one million hits. Anderson asked the musicians to do more videos that he would professionally film and upload to his store's Facebook and YouTube pages to promote his store. Nelson brought his neighbor, van der Beek, a songwriter and music arranger, onto the team. Tel Stewart initially assisted with video production. While the first few videos did not make much of an impact, "Michael Meets Mozart" (2010) gained a respectable showing after Schmidt invited the nearly 30,000 people on his fan mailing list "to watch it and share it". In June 2011 the group won the "Most Up-and-Coming Channel" award in the YouTube "On the Rise" contest, which brought 25,000 new subscribers to their channel. In 2011 and 2012, the group uploaded a new music video every week to two weeks, attracting thousands of new viewers each time. Meanwhile, The Piano Guys store did not register any piano sales from two years of posting videos, and closed in March 2012. The Piano Guys, The Piano Guys 2, A Family Christmas, Wonders, Uncharted, and Christmas Together, each reached number one on the Billboard Classical Albums and New Age Albums charts. The Piano Guys story is a miracle. Their mission will always be to produce music videos that inspire, uplift, and make the world a better place. If we can make a positive impact in even one persons life it has all been worth it to us.

Ninko, a young diligent Buddhist monk, has a serious problem: women (and some men too) are attracted to him. After a series of troubling encounters with infatuated woman, Ninko starts a journey to seek purification and to escape from his troubles.Bizarre and sometimes kitschy, the film follows Ninko as he comes to grip with the anguish of his hyper-sexualised world, mirroring our modern day society where we are constantly bombarded by sexuality and its allure. The Suffering of Ninko turns on sensuality to overload and asks “does the sufferings of Ninko come from external sources or from his internal weaknesses?”Directed by Norhiro Niwatsukino*There will be a post-screening discussion with the film director
