My friend, Chitra Srikrishna and I doing a music gig called “Hum Raag.” It is a fun project where we link film songs to classical Indian music. Kabir bhajans, abhangs, light songs, carnatic music, hindustani music and the like.
Our next show is on Sunday, January 18th from 5 to 7 PM. At Unnati Bangalore’s auditorium. Please do spread the word to music lovers in Bangalore. Details below.
This month we have planned a special program as per details attached. Please do not miss the same. Please make a note: 18th January at 5.00 pm
Hum Raag is an experience sure to excite and entertain all of you and take you all through a wonderful journey of music and poetry aided by audio and video presentations.
The performance features audio and video snippets of songs and live performance of the ragas or melody. They are based on a short background of the ragas and their forms, both in carnatic and Hindustani traditions. Smt. Chitra Srikrishna, an ‘A’ grade artiste with AIR and a carnatic vocalist for over a decade now, will perform with percussion accompaniments, while Smt. Shoba Narayan, an author, columnist and music lover, will weave the story and take us through the entire journey, playing the role of the ‘Sutradar”. From Bhajans to bollywood all will be covered featuring a variety of languages. On the whole it is going to be an enjoyable, entertaining as well as educative and informative evening, not to be missed.
