DE – Raga CDs of the Months (12/2015): NAVA RASA-S… the Moods of Indian Ragas
Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on December 3, 2015
In Indian performing arts the term “Rasa” occasionally is awarded to an outstanding meaning, in comparison to the Western world very differently. To the dancer, actor, instrumentalist or vocalist is given the task to ariuse in the audience some determined emotions, the Rasa-s. In the Middle Ages Bharata Muni described in his Natyasastra – a theoretical study for dramaturgy – eight types of emotions, later were completed by the 9th expression Shantham.
