Understanding the intricacies of exploring bandish
An online workshop for Hindustani vocalists by Ajoy Chakrabarty

Supported by Citi

In the context of Indian art (classical) music performance, the main objective is to portray the personality of a raga in an unambiguous manner, and a good composition, often referred to as a bandish, helps achieve this.

The session will focus on details of techniques and modalities such as alap, bolalap, tan, boltan, sargam, etc. that are conventionally adopted to develop a bandish in Hindustani (North Indian) vocal music. Special attention will be given to the finer aspects such as projection of rasabhav (aesthetic emotion), which is essential for an effective portrayal of a raga.

Ajoy Chakrabarty is one of the most celebrated vocalists today. As a renowned guru, he has contributed significantly to the pedagogy of Indian music.
