Guest Speakers : Photographers of Manipur Photography Club.

Language: Podcast in English & Manipuri/Meiteilon.

I had the opportunity to cover a Photo walk event organized by Manipur Photography Club at Ema Keithel in Imphal, Manipur and meet many of the photographers whose work we have featured. Manipur Photography Club inspired me to add the photography section of FindingTheVoices. Most of our photographs are sponsored by members of Manipur Photography club. We have received very good feedback and messages from many, on these photographs. These are pictures which shows the beauty of Manipur, educating us of places we haven’t seen, of people and many aspects of Manipur. These are pictures, pictures that talks to you and many a times requires no words for description.

Manipur Photography club has created a very positive international platform bringing together members from all over the world. We appreciate the work and events (Photo walks, competitions, support for social events) organized by MPC in encouraging participation from all members. It is encouraging to see the positivity created amongst the youth in Manipur in adopting photography as a hobby, learning and sharing from each other and also giving opportunity for covering photo events in many events for the professional members.

For many of us we start our day in the morning, looking at the beautiful uploads at Manipur Photography Club, looking forward for more everyday. We look forward for a continuous collaboration with FindingTheVoices.

This episode is very special episode as I got to meet in person many of the photographers and family of FindingTheVoices, and got to hear their story, comments, feedback about FindingTheVoices too. Thanks everyone for taking the time to share about Manipur Photography Club and FindingTheVoices. Watch this episode to learn how MPC was formed, voices of MPC members.

S02E12  FindingTheVoices: Mangka Mayanglambam sharing her journey as a Manipuri Folk singer.

Guest Speaker: Mangka Mayanglambam, Manipuri Folk, Traditional, Classical and Contemporary song performer.

Interview Location: Imphal, Manipur, India.

Language: Podcast in English.

Mangka Mayanglambam is the daughter of Mayanglambam Mangangsana and Maibam Rebika. She is a young and beautiful Manipuri Folk, Traditional, Classical and Contemporary song performer. She is such a beautiful artist, a gift to us, a gift to the land of Manipur filled with conflicts giving us hope, bringing smiles with her voice, with her performances, in reviving and inspiring many young and old, and re introducing the Manipuri folk songs to us, to the world.

We have seen, heard and admired many, many beautiful Manipuri folk song performances from our very own Mangka Mayanglambam, playing it back to back. And now we are proud to present her interview where she shares details about her journey as a Manipuri folk singer. I really enjoyed listening to her story and thoughts, that too coming from a teenager. Watch to find out How Mangka got into the world of Manipuri folk singer, what she enjoys, her dreams and aspirations. Find out what she likes to do for fun.

It’s interesting to note her thoughts and experience of an artist in Manipur and outside of Manipur. Her thoughts and story left me with the questions like “Do we give the due respect for an artist in Manipur ? What are the challenges faced by an artist ?”

Wishing her success in showing the world about Manipuri folk songs, we look forward for her upcoming performances and we know we will definitely have her again and again in our show in future.

Here is my favorite Mangka’s folk song performance at the opening of International polo at Manipur Polo Ground 2014, a song I have heard back to back many times.
