Concept, composition and vocal rendition: Shubha Mudgal
Supported by Aneesh Pradhan (tabla) and Sudhir Nayak (harmonium)
For centuries, women have featured as protagonists in Indian poetry and song. From the female divine to the nayikas and ganikas, the presence of women was conspicuous in Indian classical literature and songs. Often, these verses and songs were penned by male poets writing in the female voice, thus transcending certain gender barriers that were otherwise insurmountable. And yet, their writing was coloured by the social context in which they were situated.
A renowned vocalist and composer, Shubha Mudgal presents a selection of verses penned by great masters of Indian poetry that reflect perspectives on sexuality, beauty, societal norms and stigmas related to women of an earlier era. Set to music by Mudgal, the verses convey stories of women, some full of sensuality and unabashed eroticism, others of the terrible, tragic challenges and stigmas that women continue to face and fight to this day and age.
