Ragamala is a series of miniature paintings created between the 16th and 17th centuries. Translated literally as ‘Garland of Ragas’, Ragamala is a classic example of the amalgamation of art, poetry and classical music in medieval India. While the medieval painters interpreted music through colours and strokes, we add one more dimension to this treasure by interpreting the paintings through Kathak dance. Ragamala – Stories of Sound, is an ode to the depth of human imagination, where artists can picture sound, sing visuals and dance emotions. 100 performers weave a garland of ragas as they breathe life into miniature paintings and personify ragas through stories, movement and music. The result is journey that transports the audience to medieval India, into the mind of the painter.
