ABOUT THE EVENT
The rāga is a unique feature of Indian classical music tradition, while rasa means aesthetics, juice, essence, and is experienced only in the art form.
As part of the ‘Raga-Rasa in a Heritage Home’ event, there will also be a 1-hour interactive session on exploring the scientific and cultural significance of ragas, through performance and conversation.
This will include the mathematics behind creating a raga, its history and relevance in the world of Indian music, film songs that are based on ragas, and practical examples of ragas being developed on the bansuri.
Gandhaar, a music composer, producer and flautist from Pune, who has been working towards creating a new sound that makes traditional Indian melodies more appealing to the modern, urban, global audience, will be the resource person for the event.
He has been performing his own music for the past 15 years, and composing and producing music for TV and film for almost a decade. More details about him are available at:
These performances will be held in Benaulim, at Silva Heritage, which is a 350-year-old colonial mansion.
