Lec-dem on ragas handled by Thyagarajar
CHENNAI, December 14: Dr. Arivandan Ranganathan will give a lecture-cum demonstration on ragas handled by Saint Thyagarajar.

The lec-dem will be held on December 18 at R.R. Sabha in Mylapore.

The lec-dem will begin at 11 a.m.

The lec-dem will rely on excerpts from Walajapet notations.

"My aim is to make people aware that these versions existed," Dr. Ranganathan said. "Also, the aim is to indicate how much the present versions have deviated from those old ones," he added. This lec-dem is part of the series of sessions - "musical musings'' - being organised by R.R. Sabha during the December music season.

These "interactive and insightful sessions with experts" will spread over 10 days beginning December 16. Each day, the session will begin at 10.30 a.m. and last till noon.

The "Musical Musings'' will be inaugurated on December 16 by Bharathanatyam exponent Dr. Padma Subramaniam.
