Dharamvir Singh and Surmeet Singh

Understanding Raga- The Aesthetics

In concert by Aljado

Dharamvir Singh and Surmeet Singh take the reader through the elements that define raga: the linking of the mood and melody to the times of the day and to the nine human emotions or navarasa.


Indian music gives great prominence to melody and offers musicians an immense scope to pour out their emotions. The separation of a lover from the beloved (both in the worldly and godly sense), the exploration of the natural world, sensual beauty or praises of the kings and patrons can all be explored through its rich vocal inflections and instrumental textures.
