This journey of ragas commenced from Banaras, on 18th Nov 2017, home to the legendary Hindustani Vocalists Pandit Rajan Misra & Pandit Sajan Misra, where they learnt their music and imbibed the amazing spirit of Banaras.
A part of this tour was officially supported by the Government of India and ICCR. This journey took our Indian Classical Music to 13 countries for 55 concerts, that included cities and venues like the birth place of the great poet Shri Rabindra Nath Tagore in Kolkata, on the banks of river Ganga in Banaras, Beijing, China, the famous Angkor Archaeological Park in Cambodia and many cities of North America, UK and Europe.
The concept of Bhairav Se Bhairavi Tak was to present the spectrum of morning to evening Ragas (from Raga Bhairav to Raga Bhairavi). It was also to encourage morning & afternoon concerts apart from generally organized evening concerts. The science of notes, for creating ragas according to the time & season, is unique to the world of music. In this tour we have succeeded to have not only evening/night concerts but also morning and afternoon concerts to give the audiences an opportunity to listen different Ragas which are less explored or presented.
The chaos, strife, war, communal tension, the increasing chasm between humanities was the other major reason to conceive this world tour. Music being a language that connects without boundaries, is a humble effort to reach out and connect the worlds through the medium of music.
Thankful to Pandit Kumar Bose, Pandit Dharmnath Mishra, Pandit Arvind Azad, Shri Sumit Mishra, Shri Vineet Vyas, Shri Shantilal Shah, Shri Sanju Sahai & Shri Niahr Mehta for being part of this journey. For a project as humongous as this, there were many many well wishers involved to make it a success,
our gratitude towards them too.
