Curator’s Corner: Seven Notes to Infinite Xpressions
Hear directly from Sadhana Rao, the curator of the festival, about how visual and musical art forms merge, and explore musical pathways through diverse cultures. The session seeks to elucidate various expressions of music, including how music makers use and play with the seven svaras or notes to create unique musical repertoires, and layer compositions with melodies, motifs, beats and harmonies. The session also uncovered how musical genres differ from, as well as interact with, each other; and highlighted how musicians innovate while retaining certain classical norms to produce barrier-breaking music.
