Ragas, the foundation of Indian classical music, largely remain a mystery to the common man. Bollywood music, on the other hand, appeals to the masses' and becomes part of the popular culture. One would think ragas and Bollywood music belong to two different universes. NOT SO, not so at all, and that is the theme of Bollywood Meets Ragas- an incredible journey!
The two-and-a-half-hour virtual concert showcases more than twenty prominent ragas through an array of Bollywood songs rendered by three classically trained playback singers and accompanying musicians. These are the songs we grew up humming. Dr. Deodhar punctuates the concert with anecdotes and essential elements of the ragas. High-definition backdrop projections provide visual perspective to the songs and the ragas.
The concert salutes the great music directors who captured the essence of classical ragas in a 4/5-minute composition while accommodating the needs of the film script, the whims of the producer, and the fancy of the film director
