Discovering the role of raga beyond being a scale with flautist Aravindhan Baheerathan
Saturday 17th February 2018
Each raga evokes a certain feeling or emotion. The raga Hamsadhwani for instance is associated with energy, faith and discipline usually featured near the beginning of a Carnatic concert. In this exciting and energetic performance, Aravindhan looks at the function of various ragas and what can they mean beyond their classical tradition.
Aravindhan is a young and upcoming Flautist and a senior disciple of Sri P. Gnanavarathan and completed his arangetram in 2004. He is widely known across the UK and Europe and has performed as a soloist during the Chennai Music Festival on multiple occasions, along with performances at the Darbar Festival in 2010 and 2012. He recently featured on a soundtrack for the Sir Ben Kingsley film 'Learning to Drive'.
