Indian Raga - Painting with Music

This Friday was a lovely end to the week with a concert organised as part of the 4 Minds project some of the 2nd years are doing with Ranjana. It fitted in with the lecture she gave us regarding the current project so I went along. I didn't know what to expect, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The concert was by Prakriti Dutta and it was a small affair in the Mac lecture theatre. Prakriti sang and explained the tradition of the Raga - traditional indian singing and music. She explained that it was a melodic scale using 12 notes and likened it to having 12 colours with which to paint a canvas. Her voice was beautiful - rich and smooth - and she sang with such emotion.
