Bhava Yatra

Bhava Yatra is an inspiring journey into the depths of emotions, feelings and divinity through Hindustani Classical music, where melody, rhythm and song blend with the traditional art of storytelling.

The core idea for Bhava Yatra is a shloka from the Bhagavad Gita in which Lord Krishna says that He will fulfill us in whichever way we seek Him. With this simple spiritual insight, Bhava Yatra journeys through three emotions or rasas; three shades of love – vatsalya (parental love), sakhya (friendship) and madhurya (romance). In this journey of exploration, we ride the waves of emotion through music and our chosen motif – Krishna.

Narration by a sutradhaar ties together this rendition of classical compositions including Dhrupad, Dhamar, Khayal, Thumri and Bhajan. Of the 12 compositions, 9 are by the renowned late Pt. Dinkar Kaikini.
