Tracing Ragas through the ages, Tara will evoke the majesty of the Himalayas through the rendition of Dhrupad, the most ancient form of Hindustani Classical Music. A transition to the Khayal genre with a romantic theme follows the movement of the Raga from forests and temples to courts and social gatherings. Abhang, a vibrant form of devotional music in Maharashtra, paves the way to Sant Kabir's verses that enter the melody beyond Ragas.
