I also highly recommend this 4 hour detailed view of ICM which used to be on Youtube in full but has now been removed.

About Raga Unveiled

India, unlike any other country in the world, boasts of cradling an art music that has been sifted and refined over 4000 years. With the even flow of evolution and an unshakeable support of theory, raga music is at once vibrant, mesmeric and sublime to this day. At its core is an ambition to profoundly change the performer and the listener at the deepest level. Nothing more nothing less!

Raga Unveiled is a most inspiring and sweeping look at the entire “ architectural brilliance” of a musical system that gave birth to this most wonderful and profound musical art form. For the first time on film, eloquent commentaries by musicians, Vedic scholars, and musicologists join hands with spectacular cinematography, intoxicating spectrums of sound, and rare archival footage resulting in a grand synthesis to honor this music in its entirety.

Raga Unveiled inspires, moves and transports one to a place that you never imagined existed. It is a spiritual engagement second to none!

I have seen this amazing DVD a year or so ago. I highly recommend it to anyone!!

There is a showing of this in New Orleans for a small fee early next month. I am going to get some friends that are unfamiliar with the music to attend.

Just received a new link…

" The healing Power of Dance".



is a small clip of the Odissi Dance showcased in my recently released film "Thukul"( which means freeze).The message of the film was " The healing Power of Dance". It is the story of a poor but determined girl's journey into Odissi stardom with the support of an equally dedicated singer who gives up his passion of singing to see his beloved to great success.Unfortunately he had a mishap where he looses his sanity when the girl challenges that if everything fails the power of dance will revive him. Please note it is not an art movie and the dance may not be in its purest format. The mission was to present Odissi in the celluloid media.
