In Greek mythology, Earth is revered as Gaia, the ancestral mother of all life. So too do Hindu scriptures, which worship Mother Earth as Bhooma Devi or Prithivi. As an artistic expression exploring the beauty and significance of Mother Earth, this musical production will reflect the simple but oft-forgotten truth that we are inextricably woven into the fabric of nature itself, without which humanity would cease to be. Despite the destruction wrought upon the Earth by humankind, Mother Nature continues to sustain us. This is but a humble attempt to present an ode to the planet that sustains us, a reminder to cherish and preserve her gift to humankind.

The Temple of Fine Arts (TFA) hope to celebrate the significant role that the nature has in our daily lives through the presentation of a musical orchestra ensemble enhanced by visual projection. More than ever, the rapid and multiple challenges the earth is experiencing, such as climate change and a global pandemic, has made humans question if the earth is indeed suffering from mankind’s excesses. The world at large is at a point where it is longing for something beyond entertainment and materialism. The difficult experiences as well as the forced period of pause in our lives have made many of us ponder deeply and in the process, reset our priorities in a renewed light: Can we live in a more sustainable way? What kind of world do we want to pass on to our children and future generations?

As a result, there is a shift in mindsets towards a more holistic way of living, be it our choice of food, a greener environment, or a more spiritual outlook. The incorporation of selected Chinese and Malay instruments into the existing Indian ensemble of instruments symbolise the coming together of various races as a harmonious united front to spread positivity and solidarity in these unprecedented times. It is the hope of TFA that this musical endeavour will impact the audience at an emotional level and augment existing environmental awareness efforts.
