Music can help treat illnesses and aide relaxation. It can help bring us in harmony with our bodies and relieve stress by establishing a connection with nature. This is what the Indian artist, Rajasree Mukherhjee, has been working on for the last two decades.

The Indian Embassy in Berlin will host an Indian Music Therapy event on October the 19th at 6pm, which will offer those interested the opportunity to experience in person the healing and relaxing power of music.

Rajasree Mukherhjee is an Indian musician who studied Rabindranath Tagore’s music under the guidance of guru, Suchitra Mitra. Tagore was a revolutionary figure in Bengali literature and music. The former, which includes poems and other works, often became the lyrics for the latter. His works were studied in depth by Rajasree Mukherhjee, who graduated in Indian Music from both Prayag University in Allahabad and Prachin Kala Kendra in Chandigarh.

She spent 28 years of her life in Africa, performing in countries such as Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia. In India she has showcased her art in many different cities and also had the chance to travel to Canada and the USA, where people from a Western culture could witness the power of Indian music therapy.

This month she will give a lecture and a demonstration in Berlin, both of which are open to the general public. She will combine Indian classical music, Vedic hymns and chants, explaining the role that they play in meditation techniques and for healing various ailments. In order to conduct a balanced and healthy life we need to find peace and harmony with our bodies. Indian music therapy can help us achieve that.
