Ghan Garaje: Monsoon Melodies

Ghan Garaje: Monsoon Melodies

Indian Classical

The advent of the rainy season is richly celebrated in Hindustani music. Ragas of the Malhar family and myriad genres of semi-classical music like thumri and dadra are inseparably associated with this season. Several allied folk forms like kajri, sawan, jhoola, hindola express the pain of separation and the joy of union with the beloved in the month of Sawan. Endowed with a sonorous voice, Soma Ghosh imbibed the Benaras style of semi-classical music from her mentor, Bageshwari Devi. A doctorate in music, she has had the rare privilege of performing alongside many legendary musicians, including Bismillah Khan. In this recital, Ghosh will present a range ofsemi-classical formswithcharacteristic flavour of Poorabang, to usher in the lively season of the rains.
