People who have saved this event:



The word ‘raga' derives from the Sanskrit root - ranj - which means to tinge, to colour, love, passion and beauty, particularly of a voice or song. A ragamala, ‘garland of ragas' is a set of paintings depicting various musical modes, ragas, of Indian music. Selected from the University of Edinburgh's collection, this exhibition presents a series of unique Indian Miniature paintings and is the first exhibition in Britain in 40 years to reflect this subject matter. Ragamala will reflect a delicate genre that intimately draws together poetry, painting and music.
