Indian video producer Srinivas Bhatt (YouTube: CrestVideos) has released his latest visual triumph, "Tribute by Nature," featuring music by the great Hariprasad Chaurasia. Bhatt's video, which features beautiful imagery from the heartlands of India, has gone viral on YouYube drawing attention from many nations of the world, and especially in the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Canada, Russia, Australia, East Africa, Bangladesh, and India herself. This is only the newest in a long line of videos directed, produced, and otherwise entirely executed solely by Bhatt.
Bhatt's music video, “Tribute by Nature” visually describes a famous 1993 song called "Water Poems" by the greatest Indian flutist, guru Hariprasad Chaurasia, on an album called "The Music of the Rivers." Bhatt composed the video using the most splendid scenes he could find of the Himalayas, rain forests, the Ganges river (Ganga Ma), waterfalls, as well as various other Indian flora and fauna. Of the content of Indian classical music, Srinivas Bhatt says, “Indian classical music basically depicts the devotional songs written by great Indian sages and seers on Hindu gods like Rama, Krishna, Shiv, etc.”
If the precision of Bhatt's imagery seems surprisingly adroit, it may be because Bhatt, himself, is a musician. Srinivas Bhatt holds a university diploma in the mridang, which he describes as, “a classical Indian percussion instrument equivalent of Tabla.” In fact, Bhatt has been playing classical Indian music since the age of ten. He also received the Andhra Pradesh Music Academy merit scholarship for his acuity. He has given over five-hundred live performances in concert as accompaniment for Indian vocalists, as well as for instrumentals such as veena, the Indian form of violin, and the flute.
“Countless forms of Indian classical music fascinate me,” says Bhatt. “Hindustani music has a slow expression of words but rather melodious disposition of countless ragas, but I'm also fascinated by the speedy Carnatic music with its emphasis on devotional Kirtans.” Bhatt prefers to understand lyrics fully in order to get a true feeling of the composer.
Says Bhatt, “My effort is to ensure that the common, stressed-out dude on the move can chill out by viewing this music video. I look forward to bringing out more music videos with a popular combination of heavenly music tracks and exciting visuals.”
