Milap’s Music for the Mind & Soul concert series is continuing to thrive in its new digital format, with another show lined up this May, featuring two female maestros.

In what will be this year’s fourth showcase under the ‘Music for the Mind & Soul’ banner, Milap will present internationally renowned sitarist Mita Nag, accompanied by the Tabla prodigy Rimpa Siva, performing ‘Raag Bhimpalasi’, which is traditionally performed during the late afternoon hours, up to sunset.

Mita Nag, daughter of veteran sitarist Pandit Manilal Nag, is the sixth generation sitar player in her family, and belongs to the Vishnupur Gharana of Bengal – a school of music nearly 300 years old. She is one of the most renowned sitarits in Indian Classical music.
