Let's journey back in time to Darbar Festival 2022 when we were graced by the exceptional talents of Purbayan Chatterjee and Rakesh Chaurasia. Accompanied by the tabla maestro Satyajit Talkwalkar and Patri Satish on mridangam, they left London absolutely spellbound.
Raag Pahadi is a popular raga based on folk music. As its name suggests, it originates from the mountainous region of Himalayas. It resembles two other ragas which exude the rich cultural heritage of folk music: Mand from the Rajasthan region and Pilu from the Hindi heartland. It is a light raga and resembles more like a ‘dhun’. It is very popular in Hindi music and sometimes simulates multiple echoes.
