Weeping. Sighing. Swooning. Indian culture has one remedy for all these ills: classical music. In India, music is regarded as the key to self-discovery. For hundreds of years, classical Indian music has been passed on orally from teacher to pupil, never written down. »How many forms are out there, buried forever in the dust?«  asks Eero Hämeenniemi in his song cycle Sab Kahân. In collaboration with the Indian singer Bombay Jayashri, Hämeenniemi draws careful parallels between Indian and European baroque music. Additional soul food is provided by Edward Elgar, Brian Ferneyhough, Henry Purcell and Georg Friedrich Händel. To lament is to be human.
