The New Age Percussionits

VESH TANTRA

An effort first time of its kind being staged in Kolkata. Vesh Tantra - where timeless Raga’s pulsating rhythm and aesthetic fashion wear comes full circle. The unique feature of this evening lies within the combination of fashion and Ragas depicting the colour of the sky during different parts of the day.

Our lives revolve through out the day in various moods at various points of time. Likewise, nature, atmosphere and the Heaven above too change as the day grows older. This unique effort combines the colours of the sky epitomized by moods of the ragas which are typical of the various hours of the day. It is of common knowledge that we wear dresses of various colours to suit the times of the day- hence the unique bridge between fashion and music Vesh Tantra.

There is an old maxim- The apparel oft proclaims the man.

Each Raga may be typified by certain hues and tints- likewise colours in our dresses depict the moods and emotions of the Ragas and bring out the different persona of those wearing the dresses.
