Saturday Session: Songs and Storytelling | Karan Bali
Date: 29th August and 5th September
Time: 12-2 PM in August | 5-7pm In September
Total Session Duration: 4 Hours
About the sessions:
The aim of the two day session, spread over two Saturdays, is to take the participants through a journey from the coming of sound and music in Indian cinema to reaching its golden age in the 1950s and 1960s and thereafter to present day trends. The sessions would also highlight the invaluable contribution of our great composers, lyricists, singers, choreographers and of course our key filmmakers, who were all able to combine together and take song picturisation to an art form, one that is, sadly, dying out rapidly today.
