About the Event

This film examines the development of the Khayal, a form of North Indian classical music established in the 18th century based on the earlier Dhrupad which it then adapted, mobilising elements of other classical and folk literature and music.‘Khayal Gatha’ is a visually stunning narration condensing legend, history, music and poetry, emphasising hybridity in all cultural practices.
