Darshana: Ragas on Veena
October 1, 2022 @ 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.
This performance is complemented with the exhibit Darshana: A glimpse into the Hindu Civilization. This performance as well as the exhibit is free with general admission at Conner Prairie.
