Our recital programme Dha dhin din dro combines mouth music traditions of India and Scotland with songs by Rabindranath Tagore (1861–1941). Tagore wrote over 2,300 songs, often blending elements of different ragas or allowing Hindustani and Western musical styles to interact, as in his translations of songs by Robert Burns. Dha dhin din dro is an intercultural adventure involving dhrupad (the oldest living musical tradition of India), khayal, Scottish piping, canntaireachd and tarana, the exhilirating vocal accompaniment for Kathak dancing.
