Mahadev Cometo – RTS 1, Paradiso, Jan 1, 2018

Radio RTS 1 « Paradiso »

RTS 1, Paradiso
Jan 1st, 2018, 19h
Mahadev Cometo, alias Al Comet, alias Alain Monod
Interview by Yann Zitouni
Realisation by Jean-Claude Gailly.

«Paradiso», c’est l’observation permanente et attentive des musiques actuelles d’ici et d’ailleurs. On y reçoit les artistes émergents avec la même bienveillance que les stars du showbiz. On y découvre des perles rares autant qu’on y salue des carrières abouties.
On essaie aussi d’inscrire ce que nos oreilles entendent dans un contexte plus large, pour comprendre que toutes les musiques ont des histoires et que ces histoires sont importantes pour bien comprendre les musiques. Une émission de Yann Zitouni.

An Interview @ Paradise

Interview with Mahadev Cometo, only:

« A sitar can have 18, 19, 20, or 21 strings. Six or seven of these are played strings which run over curved, raised frets, and the remainder are sympathetic strings (tarb, also known as taarif or tarafdaar) which run underneath the frets and resonate in sympathy with the played strings. The frets are movable, allowing fine tuning… », – Wikipedia

Mahadev Cometo – Made in India

One topic in the interview was about the book Mahadev Cometo – «Made in India». Below, pics from the book showing Mahadev’s sitar guru, Pandit Rabindra Narayan Goswami and Rajaneesh Tiwari teaching tabla at Banaras Hindu University (Varanasi).
