Following a world premiere at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., Ragamala brings Yathra to The O’Shaughnessy stage. A visual meditation ofthe human experience, Yathra represents the cycle of one day, metaphoricallytracing a human being’s journey from the dawn of birth to the twilight of life. Composed and played live by Shubhendra Rao — one of India’s foremost sitarists — and cellist Saskia Rao — a pioneer in the Indian music world —Yathra’s score is as evocative and rich as life’s journey. Ragamala is internationally renowned for its contemporary presentation of Bharatanatyam, the classical dance of southern India.
