Sandhya

Sandhya

By Saraswati Mahavidhyalaya

Sandhya, a musical offering by Saraswati Mahavidhyalaya, is a performance featuring a series of interconnected instrumental and vocal compositions that explore the theme of the evening raga. “Raga” or “raag” defined as “colour” or "passion" in Sanskrit, are diverse sets of musical notation, which evolved to enhance the ancient Indian performance quality of “rasa” - the emotional or aesthetic characteristics of a work of art. Evening ragas inaugurate the night and inspire connections to the supramundane through a process known as “ragadevata”. Demonstrating the multi-faceted nature of the evening raga, Sandhya features senior Saraswati Mahavidhyalaya dancers performing to live music.
