An NCPA Presentation

Ethnic yet contemporary, the euphoric genre of music created by Rabindranath Tagore attempted to assimilate many influences from traditional Bangla folk and devotional genres to Hindustani ragas. What is equally interesting is that some compositions also reveal a marked influence of traditional Scottish, Irish and old English tunes. In this recital, we present both versions, the original non-Indian compositions, alongside those composed by Tagore, presented by two groups of accomplished singers. Such juxtaposition is sure to elucidate the depth of Tagore’s unsurpassed creativity.
