Ragas of the Gods – a unique multimedia musical journey across India.
Hosted in the festive season of Dasera and Divali, Ragas of the Gods features a bouquet of different Indian musical traditions. We start our musical journey in Amritsar and traverse through the varied terrain of this vast and wonderful country reaching Tanjore in the south, where the traditions of the north musically meet the ancient southern traditions like the joyful confluence of two great rivers. This is the first time that Indian music is being presented in such a format in New Zealand. Performing on stage will be Sandhya Rao, Ashok Malur (violin), Vidya Teke, Mayur Tendulkar, Samir Bhalodkar (samvadini), Lester Silver (sitar), Viraj Maki, Siddhi Nigudkar, Srisha Iyer, Mayuri Bhole, Vedant Kaduskar and others. Conceived and written by Dev Nadkarni, the multimedia Ragas of the Gods will be narrated by Dr Neelima Upadhyay and Kaustubh Pethe.
