Darshana: Ragas on Veena
October 1 @ 11:30 am - 11:45 am
Veena is a string instrument that dates back to ancient Vedic times. It is the divine instrument that the Goddess of knowledge Saraswathi plays. It is similar to the modern-day Harp. The soothing melody of the Veena transports the listener to an elevated spiritual experience.
Mrs.Sreemala Murthy will present a few musical compositions in various different Ragas (melodies) – in pentatonic and hexatonic scales which personify various moods of the day. Mrs.Murthy has been playing the instrument since her childhood. She has given lec-demos at the international Festivals in Indianapolis since 2008. She has also performed at the Heartland Film festival and other major celebratory events.
