Stories in a Song

Stories in a Song

Conceived by Shubha Mudgal and Aneesh Pradhan. Accounts of music making in India, and stories of the struggles and hardships faced by musicians both real and imaginary, lay the foundation for a collage of dramatized episodes that blend theatre, music and literature. Several forms of theatre in India make abundant use of music, but Stories in a Song takes the help of theatre to tell stories of musical forms such as kajri, thumri-dadra, khayal, remixes and more.
