Sita, wife of Lord Rama, features prominently in the epic Ramayana. Manasamitra presents a musical podcast that delves into her life from the time she emerged from Bhoomi (Mother Earth) to the end of her known existence.
Learn about the various phases of her life which even today is considered exemplary. Stories will be interspersed with classical music from both the Carnatic (South Indian) and Hindustani (North Indian) traditions.
For the podcast, Supriya Nagarajan, artistic director of Manasamitra, will recite and sing, with music support from Duncan Chapman. Together they will take you on a gentle soothing journey that tells an age-old story in an interesting way, and which invites listeners to ponder and reflect on the various elements.
