Lyrics are the words which are often sung as a song. Although there are variety of lyrics rendered in different forms known by different names in Hindi/Urdu as well as English language.
Lyrics and music complement each other just as the heart and the soul.
KalaManthan is eager to unleash and welcome all the creativity in all the genres of lyrics.
Geet, Kavita, Gazal, Nazm are few known forms in Hindi/Urdu.
Poem, Sonnet, Elegy, Ode are few known forms in English.
Music is the combination or rythmic sound of musical instrument with or without vocal, in such a way as to produce beauty of form, harmony and expression of emotion. Music is older than lyrics and existed from time immemorial. The first music was of course by mother nature when wind through the leaves and chirping of birds as well as the splash of waterfall together made a rhythm which is difficult to recreate even today.
If words are soul of the song then music bejewels those words. Kalamanthan will not only give a platform to new age musicians but also try to give you a history of the various new and old instruments. We would also welcome entries if you come across any folk music across our country.
