Music has a unique way to set the mood – whether for a moment or an entire evening. Melodies or ragas of classical music underlie most of the music we listen to – whether a Hindustani bhajan, Carnatic krithi, filmi song, or even background music. Chitra Srikrishna presents ‘Moods & Melodies’ – a journey through a variety of moods with songs from across India – classical and more. Join us to see how melodies indeed can shape your moods, even in these trying times.
Chitra Srikrishna, a Carnatic musician, writer and a graded artist of All India Radio, has been an acclaimed vocalist for over three decades. She has performed in numerous cities across India, USA, Canada, Singapore and Malaysia.
In addition to classical carnatic concerts, Chitra conceives and produces thematic productions to make Carnatic music accessible to a wider audience. Her recent productions include ANTAH PRERNA – A Musical Telling of an Entrepreneur’s Journey, BHAKTHI which traces the musical journey of the mystics of India and HUMRAAG – The Classical Roots of Indian Popular Music. Her writing on culture, musical and social topics has appeared in leading newspapers. She runs a popular podcast Raga Ruminations and was the producer of RaagTime, a radio program on Indian music.
