September 4th, 2013

Bhairav se Bhairavi a music concert
Come enjoy a night of North Indian Classical music when Niche Entertainment presents a free concert, “Bhairav se Bhairavi,” on Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2013, from 7-10 p.m. in the University Capitol Centre Recital Hall on the lower level of the Old Capitol Mall. Seating begins at 6:30 p.m. and community members are invited to attend.

Seven brilliant artists from India will be in Iowa City to present Sangeet music through a scripted English narration that is both educational and entertaining. Sangeet transcends beyond the mundane levels of existence to joy, happiness, bliss, and an almost divine meditative state. It is considered as one of the most profound methods for exploring the mind.

The program will be an exposition of classical Indian musical tradition based on the eternal cyclical clock of day and night. It commences with raga Bhairav, a morning raga, and concludes with Bhairavi, typically sung at the dawn.
