is about improving the musical performance
of individuals as well as building knowledge
of all types of musicians, composers and
musical genres. SHUROLOK (Bangla; or 'the
universe of music') was formed by some
music lovers and performers of Melbourne.
While the foundation membership comprises
people of Bangali origin, it aims to build
partnership between Bangalis and people
of other ethnicity and linguistic background.
SHUROLOK aims to reach out to as many
facets of international music—vocal,
instrumental, dance and overall appreciation
of music, as a means to harness creativity
in the society. Music will be the common
thread in this link. SHUROLOK believes
that creativity through music enriches
human capacity for problem solving, and
for inventing rich imaginative worlds,
and for bringing societal harmony. All
creativity deserves to be developed and
encouraged. While not everyone is a Bach
or a Mozart, that does not mean that they
have nothing to contribute. Indeed we
will never know if humanity has in fact
lost another Bach or Mozart because they
were born the wrong gender, in the wrong
time, or the wrong place, or simply lacked
the environment for full development.
We believe that there
is an element of music and natural creativity
present in everybody. The platform for
learning and expression of the beauty
of music is what SHUROLOK aims to offer.
Not all music lovers need to be astute
singers or accomplished performers.
If you love music,
we love you. SHUROLOK's door is thus open,
as wide as possible for a variety of music
lovers, performers, musicians or simply
quiet listeners and critics.
