THE BRILLIANT IMAGERY OF KHAYAL GATHA (1989)

Just like my previous post, I decided to devote this Sunday at sharing screenshots/ imagery from Kumar Shahani’s simultaneously impressionistic and expressionistic take on the history of Khayal form of singing and its further influence on dancing techniques down the centuries. This constitutes the brilliance of KHAYAL GATHA.

Of course, I have written an essay on it previously published here so I won’t be repeating myself. For now, I will let you behold its catalogue of unforgettable images. Like Siddheshwari, this one too is an aesthetic delight, helping one grasp the myth, ethos and history behind the classical ouevre.
