About the Production:
The name Varanasi brings to mind washed ghats with their colourful umbrellas, flanking the undulating river Ganges on both sides.
But it seems that the narrow winding lanes and by lanes that crisscross Banaras, connect this majestic river to life, and death –a cauldron of pulsating, colourful, rhythmic, melodious, rich life that brings you alive, and the raging fires of life’s glorious end & a firm belief that a holy dip and attaining one’s end in Kashi will help attain Moksha. Passing through such a unique narrow, winding lane of Banaras, we bring to you the music of this enchanted place – Thumri, Dadra, Chaiti, Nirgun. This music which showcases the pulsating heart of a city, is interspersed with enticing tales.
