This event is over.


The Navarasas (nine emotions) are commonly used to evoke a rasa (emotional state) in the audience, through a bhava (emotion or mood conveyed) by a performer, typically a dancer. This performance challenges the artists to convey the same essence of the navarasas, without a dancer but through emotive musical pieces instead. Rasanubhuti will be presented by Vaishnavi Anand on vocals along with Bombay V Anand on the violin and Sai Akhileshwar on the mridangam.


Mask-wearing is optional. However, audiences are encouraged to continue to exercise responsibility and caution, such as wearing masks when in crowded places. No tickets will be issued. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
