I closed my eyes and devoted my full attention to experiencing the rasa of the Sanskrit verses she sang. Amaradeva has commented: Due to the many unmodified Sanskrit loanwords, we must assume that Manawasinghe composed this song completely based on Sanskrit slokas.
He has even included phrases in the lyric that are not found in Sinhala. The word is a blend of Sanskrit and Pali and means a kalayak, ghatayak, or clay pot…Even though the song contained such linguistic forms not found in Sinhala, I had a strong desire to turn this poem into an unforgettable composition, because these kinds of phrases are very powerful and brash linguistic constructions. The poem narrates stories about the divine love that the female cow herders, or gopis, had for the young Krishna.
We know Manawasinghe studied this Sanskrit poem in depth because he repeatedly references the work in lectures delivered on the aesthetic appreciation of literature and music broadcast for Radio Ceylon in the s see Manawasinghe 5, Prior, during the first four decades of the twentieth century, producers of the Sri Lankan recording industry thought that the popular appeal of a song depended solely on the melody Ariyaratne What I mean by that, is that instead of being deemed unsophisticated and unimportant, lyrics were transformed into an elevated form of expression and came to be considered by many as an offshoot of Sinhala poetry Ariyaratne Born in , in the village of Balapitiya, Abhayasundara was a student at the Vidyodaya Pirivena, and had similar language training as Manawasinghe had in the Buddhist temple.
However, Abhayasundara not only trained in Pali, Sinhala, and Sanskrit, but Hindi as well, passing out with honors from Vidyodaya in at the age of Abhayasundara Between and , Abhayasundara worked primarily as an editor at various Sinhala newspapers. The same was done for Tamil songs. The singers did not consider whether or not these new lyrics had any relationship to the tempo, melody and percussive rhythms of the already existing tune. Sometimes we find a specific rhythm in Indian songs that mirrors the joyful feelings found in the lyric.
Maybe such a song is sung for the very purpose of creating joy. Despite the fact that there is no hint of sadness in the lyric or rhythm of the song, Sinhala lyricists put words to that song and then sang it in a sad way.
After Sinhala words are put to the tune our musicians sang it as a love song. A year later the Lankadipa newspaper hired him as an editor and translator. He worked under the influential University of Ceylon linguist, Professor D. Hettiarachchi ibid: Very active as a scholar, in , Abhayasundara published Nishadi, named after his first radio opera.
The book contained a page music history of Sinhala song, followed by nine of his own radio opera librettos. The following year the book won the State Literary award for best work of poetry.
In the introduction to the music history, Abhayasundara alludes to his conviction concerning ancient connections between Sinhala literary-music culture and India: The Vedas are a collection of song lyrics.
If you want to measure the esteem at which the Indo- Aryans held song, you only have to study the Vedas. The Sama Vedas evince a peerless consideration of the aesthetics of sound in poetic language, and is a musical monument of the East.
Compared with prose, poetry was well known amongst the Indo Aryans because unlike prose, one could sing verses of poetry sweetly. That is why Indo Aryans wrote through the medium of poetic verse when writing about the arts, sciences, crafts, or philosophy.
They sang these verses to songs replete with talas, tempos, and gaits. Not only in India, but in adjacent countries like our little Sri Lanka we are not excluded from these practices. He also began reading as much as possible on the art form and after one year of study, intended to publish a small book on Indian classical music. However, when his wife departed in for North India to study at the Bhatkhande Music College in Lucknow, he followed and pursued his studies further.
There were prior publications in Sinhala on Indian classical music such as M. However, nothing was comparable in scope or breadth to this. In his bibliography organized according to language, he cited forty-four Sanskrit primary sources, and a plethora of sources in Hindi, Pali, Sinhala, and English.
In , Radio Ceylon producer Tewis Guruge conceived of a musical form that would tell a story through the medium of an opera-like libretto, set to North Indian classical music. We know Guruge was under pressure to introduce a new form of high-quality Sinhala music because in January of , a group of influential intellectuals like author Martin Wikremasinghe, Kandyan lawyer N.
Weerasuriya, and artist J. Guruge presented his idea for the radio opera to the chairman of Radio Ceylon, H. Perera, and to the director of the Sinhala music department, P. Dunstin De Silva. They invited Chandraratna Manawasinghe to pen a minutes libretto that would be the first Sinhala radio opera Abhayasundara : Commenting on the central role the radio opera played in raising the quality of Sinhala song, Wimal Abhayasundara wrote this in the final chapter of his Sangita Sanhita: Until very recently our singers were accustomed to singing lyrics composed according to already composed melodies found in Hindi films.
Composing original lyrics, or original music was a rare phenomenon. Sunil Santha and Ananda Samarakone were our first two enthusiastic composers of original Sinhala music…Most of the singers were singing imitations of Hindi film songs. Having their primary objective to create a song form with national features, Radio Ceylon suspended the following of Hindi film songs, and inaugurated a new form of Sinhala music.
The pioneering result was the Sinhala radio opera. Abhayasundara : One unique aspect of the radio opera is the high art combination of Sinhala poetry with Indian classical raga.
As sexual activity arouses sensuous feelings for a newly married couple, ragas and raginis have the power to stir up our feelings. When we sense such a rasa, our eyelids close, or perhaps our eyes open wide. Our bodies are enlivened.
Our chests perk up. Not everyone, however, has the sensitivity to be affected. Our simplicity has deteriorated to some extent by our various life objectives. The less sensitive we become, the less we can imbibe the power of music. Singing of notes is categorized according to the raga type.
The doyens of the distant past embedded anthropomorphic features into their creations of raga forms.
For example, shankarabharana is a beautiful, illustrious woman who dances in a lotus flower, dressed in golden cloth. Hindola raga is one who rocks back and forth like a palanquin bouncing to and fro on top of the shoulders of one ornately decorated with white lotus flowers. Bhupali ragini is an immaculate woman whose gait is like the rocking to and fro of a palanquin on a jungle journey.
She is a mix of gold and saffron, and adorned with golden bracelets. Manawasinghe 48 Such descriptions evince an intimate and personal connection to these colorful forms. To facilitate understanding we will first present to you a list explaining what the characters of this musical drama represent. On the surface we have a simple love story about a princess who runs away from the castle to marry the man she loves. For example, King Jagatpati symbolizes the universe.
Although her father wants Manohari to marry the powerful Divapati or Sun, Manohari, the beauty of nature, prefers the soft and cool Soma Kumaru, the Moon. Here, Manawasinghe perhaps is alluding to the fact that the sun spoils the beauty of nature due to its uncomfortable rays, whereas the full moon on a Poya Day is a source of comfort and coolness.
Dunstin De Silva set the first song to the raga khammaj.
