London Nov 12th: Note to Self

 

 

Dhrupad & Khayal era type of building, Varanasi.

 

Note to self and, in case I forget this, to those coming for the London weekend 12th, Nov. At some point we will be listening to two songs: same story about Krishna saving the elephant, a bhakt (devotee), from the crocodile in DhRUPAD then in KHAYAL. We are going to feel, and look at their differences and similarities, and how one grew out of the other.
