by Rashid Khan
Hindustani Vocal Music Recital
A raga provides the melodic matrix for a performance in the Indian art music tradition. In fact, the raison d ‘être of a performance is the portrayal of a raga in an unambiguous manner. Among various features relating to the concept of raga, its relationship with diurnal and seasonal time-cycles is an interesting feature. It is believed that a raga is more effective when performed at the designated time of the day/night.
Rashid Khan is the torchbearer of Rampur-Sahaswan gharana. With his robust yet sonorous voice, uncanny technical control over sargam and taankari, effortless rendition of varied forms from khayal and tarana to thumri and geet, Khan is one of the most sought-after vocalists today.
This concert will feature traditional compositions of the Rampur-Sahaswan gharana, including bada khayal, chhota khayal and tarana in ragas assigned to the second quarter of the morning.
