Book Description

Looking at three interventions towards the resurgence of classical styles at Serendipity Arts Festival the essays in this volume contextualise traditions to provide a rich historiography of select musical drama and music forms of India. From the arrival of the gramophone and early recordings by female artists in India to the cultural relevance of Chavittu Nadakam a historic dance-theatre practiced in Kerala and the celebration of seasons across multiple folk forms of the northern and eastern belts of India these essays trace the migratory and affinitive genealogies of performing.
