‘Mela Chiraagaa’n’ to light up Sufi poet Shah Hussain’s Kafi verses

“‘MC’ is an attempt to discover the journey of this ‘malaamati faqeer’ who shunned high sounding titles, questioned dualities and found the beloved in the cadence of his ‘charkha’ (loom),” explains Radhika

While Radhika trained in music from early (“I began unwillingly due to my mother’s cajoling but soon music had me in its embrace for good”) on, it wasn’t until 2015 that she would learn of the weaver-poet Hussain’s work. (HT Photo)
