    Magnificently brilliant! In 1940s thousands of Indians gathered on the public square to hear a poor peasant girl singing sickle shaped moon in the language of the people to narrate the story of class exploitation under colonial oppression. This seminar recollects the memory of 1930s when there was a Marxist debate in Greece on aesthetics and popular culture. What is authentic in peoples music? If you change the words and use the same tune, does that degrade the music or make it more political? Magnificently brilliant! In 1940s thousands of Indians gathered on the public square to hear a poor peasant girl singing ‘sickle shaped moon’ in the language of the people to narrate the story of class exploitation under colonial oppression. This seminar recollects the memory of 1930s when there was a Marxist debate in Greece on aesthetics and popular culture. What is authentic in people’s music? If you change the words and use the same tune, does that degrade the music or make it more political? How 'significant silences' redefined music? It also focused on Indian People’s Theatre Association (IPTA), which “aimed to craft a cultural consciousness of the Indian people that would enable them to use music to give expression to the multilayered oppression that they suffered from, build on the rising sentiments against this oppression and mobilize them in the struggle to overthrow the oppressive colonial system and its institutions.” The well-known songs of the international cultural protest movement such as the Internationale and La Marseillais were translated by IPTA into different regional languages to provide the context for ordinary people to express themselves. I am in total love with these protest songs!
