Raga Revelry introduces viewers to the centuries-old tradition of North Indian classical music, often referred to as Raga music. For thousands of years, musicians have dedicated their lives to preserving this unwritten heritage that evokes a vivid range of emotions and moods and invites the listener to go beyond a limited perspective of self-awareness.
Performer and musicologist Vijay Kichlu’s journey to create a permanent sanctuary for this valuable inheritance transplants the viewer to the center of Indian spirituality and culture. Heartfelt performances and interviews from legendary musicians along with the joyful camaraderie between the artists, unfolds the Rasa, the essence or soul of this music.
Please join us for a screening of the film, followed by a Q+A panel discussion featuring filmmaker Shreedevi Thacker, Professors Jennifer Fraser and Emilia Bachrach, and conservatory student Birsa Chatterjee on tabla.
