Distant Drummer – A German-Indian Confluence
A group of young India-lovers hailing from historical Leipzig in Germany discovered Artist Dr.Mumbiram of India whose Personalist Art has already been a proven German Favourite for the past many years. This group calling itself “Distant Drummer” went on to support the efforts of Mumbiram&Party to lay the groundwork of the ambitious task of reviving the classical Rasa Theory of aesthetics of Art and Literature.
Leipzig University once had a strong Indology Department. (Max Mueller first studied Sanskrit at Leipzig.) Leipzig also once had led in Book Printing. Forces of war and politics had reduced all that. Distant Drummer represents a glorious revival of erudite German interest in treasures of classical India.
Zestful collaboration between Distant Drummer and Mumbiram&Party has produced bounties beyond everyone’s wildest dreams. A new aesthetic movement, uniting art and spirituality, is taking shape under the banner of Rasa Renaissance.
