From the makers of Yoga Unveiled comes a visually beautiful documentary that celebrates the artistry and origins of North Indian classical music. India boasts of cradling an art music that has been sifted and refined over 4000 years. With the even flow of evolution and an unshakable support of theory, raga music is at once vibrant, mesmeric, and sublime to this day. At its core is an ambition to profoundly change the performer and the listener at the deepest level. Raga Unveiled is an inspiring and sweeping look at the entire "architectural brilliance" of a musical system that gave birth to this wonderful and profound musical art form. For the first time on film, eloquent commentaries by musicians, Vedic scholars, and musicologists combine with spectacular cinematography, intoxicating spectrum of sound, and rare archival footage resulting in a grand synthesis to honor this music in its entirety. Featuring Ravi Shankar, Zakir Hussain, Ali Akbar Khan, Samir Chatterjee, Ashwini Bhide, and many more!
