About Rang Barse 2016

Presenting to you Rang Barse - A musical presentation based on Folk, Fusion and Pop! Holi celebrated during spring, also known as Dol Jatra or Boshonto Utshob, is the festival of colours or the festival of love. A festival without music is like a body without soul. Holi is also celebrated through music. Though there may be semiclassical forms of music like “Hori“ sung specifically during spring, there are numerous other folk music forms which are popular and sung during Holi and Spring Fesitval in India and by expat Indians who have settled in places such as Jamaica, Trinidad, Surinam, Mauritus, Fiji and other parts of the world. The forms may vary depending on the region. In Mathura-Vrindavan, every hori revolves around Radha-Krishna and is called Raas. In Awadh region, one would find many compositions on Ram and his brothers playing Holi, whereas in the Banaras tradition one finds the mention of Lord Shankar and Parvati in the Hori compositions. The Rang Barse team will cover a wide range of music forms from the Eastern States of India and present compositions by Tagore, Nazrul and Bauls on Spring theme as well as explore new areas such as Calypso and Regge music forms beside Rhythmic Bollywood songs.
