This collaborative work is a contemporary multimedia interpretation of Ragamala paintings dating from Mughal, India. Composer and musician Phil Scarff initiated the project and recruited Jayshree Bala Rajamani to contribute her choreographic vision and stellar dancing. Scarff composed the music, inspired by the selected paintings and guided by Rajamani’s interpretations. World-jazz group Natraj and Jayshree perform, and together bring these beautiful paintings to life through music, dance, images, spoken word, and special effects. This event is funded by the Ermanno Comparetti Concert Fund.
