For each of her performances as MetLiveArts' 2021-22 Artist in Residence, "great virtuoso of Odissi" (The New York Times) Bijayini Satpathy danced to bespoke soundtracks by Indian singer and composer Bindhumalini Narayanaswamy. Bindhumalini moved the Odissi soundscape away from its traditions, drawing freely not only on Indian musical instruments, but also sounds of nature, everyday life, and melodic textures from cultures worldwide.
Now, Bijayini Satpathy and Bindhumalini Narayanaswamy come together for a special Zoom conversation about their ongoing partnership, presenting a behind-the-scenes look at the process that brought their collaborations to The Met. Grab a cup of coffee and join us for this discussion, moderated by Limor Tomer, The Met's Lulu C. and Anthony W. Wang General Manager for Live Arts.
