JHUMURA: ‘Folk’ is an attitude than art practice

Posted by Kaahon Desk On April 16, 2015

For Anindya Chatterjee, making a film like Jhumura is probably a result of his deep engagement with folk forms especially music. As an urban individual, Anindya is acquainted with the practice of the rather popular versions of folk forms being manufactured for an urban audience. However he was equally driven by his passion about finding the origin and the idea of authenticity, something he claims to have attempted in his film Jhumura as well. Most importantly he talks about his realization that folk is essentially a matter of attitude rather than the technicalities of a form. And it is deep rooted in its own space.
