Notes from the Past, Baaja Gaaja Festival
Sunil Shanbag’s More Stories in a Song returned to Baaja Gaaja festival with new tales, lots of music and bonhomie.
The musical traditions of India are not about music alone. They are about the Indian society, their practitioners and aficionados. And if you go by Sunil Shanbag’s theatrical production, More Stories in a Song, which premiered at the latest edition of Baaja Gaaja festival in the city on Saturday, they are also so much about our past. The play — which strings together seven stories and many anecdotes — offers unique slices of Indian history through the making of music and musicians.
