Circle in the next seven days, as the music scene in Delhi takes on a fervour like never before. For music buffs in the capital, the party is going to hit its crescendo with music from different genres and languages. Raag of the Nation is here to take you on a musical extravaganza from 6 to 12 May in Connaught place’s Central park.
Delhi government and its department of Art, Culture and Languages bring you Euphoria, Jasbir Jassi, Shubha Mudgal and the who’s who of music to drown you in the melody of sound. Raag Rang is an initiative to bring together different genres of Indian music under one banner and showcase the fact that they might be different in forms but are a common carrier of our composite culture,’ said Nila Mohanan, Additional Secretary, Department of Art, Culture and Languages.
With a deluge of multifarious artists comes the color of India: right from Punjabi and Bhojpuri folk to qawalli, Sindhi and contemporary music. Delve into the beats from the popular band Euphoria, performing on the sixth day of the festival, alongside the multigenre Astitva band. Or how about a contemporary dance performance by Santosh Nair while Atique Husain Hyderabadi hues up the fest with his qawalli? The last day will have the Indian Idol 4 sensation Mohit Lalwani wooing you with his voice. It’s going to be a task to decide your pick!
